Mary Lacey teaches a variety of courses in English, with a particular interest in 19th and 20th century literature from England, the United States and Ireland. She has also led Earlham’s off-campus program in London.

She says of Earlham students, "they are ready to try new things, to go back and revise, to listen to unfamiliar perspectives, to share their lives, to risk failure, to help others. I love Earlham students with all my heart.”
