Dr. Bilson’s primary interest as a writer lies in crossing the disciplinary boundaries of fiction writing, philosophy, aesthetics, and popular culture. Originally inspired by existentialism and modernism, she has published work on topics ranging from Foucault’s theory of the panopticon as it relates to anorexia nervosa to hermetic fantasies found in Beckett’s plays and David Lynch’s films. She has served as Chair of Chester College of New England’s Writing and Literature program; Co-director of Turnstyle: the Alternative Writing Program for High School Students; and Chair of the Creative Writing Department at New Hampshire Institute of Art.
