Dr. Roula-Maria Dib has taught courses in Developmental English, Composition and Rhetoric, Advanced Composition and Research, World Mythology, and Introduction to Literature.
Her research interests lie at the interstices of psychoanalysis, mythology, modernism, and feminism, which involve frequent forays into Jungian psychology, interdisciplinary works on the literary and visual arts, and the bridge between modernist literature and science.
She has written and published some research centered on canonical writers (such as Miguel de Cervantes, Hilda Doolittle, W.B. Yeats, T.S. Eliot, and James Joyce), psychoanalysts (mainly Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung), and artists (Vincent Van Gogh, Wyndham Lewis, Salvador Dali, Agnolo Bronzino, Sandro Botticelli, and others).
Dr. Dib is a member of the T.S. Eliot Society of the UK, Literary London, The International Association of Jungian Studies, The Jungian Society of Scholarly Studies, and the British Association of Modernist Studies, and has presented papers on modernist studies at several conferences across the UK, including those at Bath Spa University, Durham University, The National Library of Wales (Aberystwyth), and the University of Leeds.
Besides her passion for research in the fields of literature and psychology, she also enjoys writing poetry. Her poems, essays, and articles have appeared in journals such as The Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism (ARAS), Non Credo, Agenda, The Oxford Culture Review, The Ekphrastic Review, Two Thirds North, and the Journal of Wyndham Lewis Studies.
She is currently working on her book, Jungian Metaphor in Modernist Literature.​
Her hobbies include reading, traveling, photography, writing, and cooking.
