She’s also written on activism performed by women interned at the Carville National Leprosarium in the 1940s 50s, and 60s. A Senior Pedagogical Fellow at UC Irvine’s Center for Engaged Instruction, Milne is passionate about teaching, and mentors aspiring academics and instructors at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
