Dr. Virago is the pseudonym of an academic who works at a regional public university in a medium sized town that she affectionately calls Rust Belt. Dr. Virago is a medievalist, a humanist, and a professor of literature. She lives with her spouse, whom she calls “Bullock” (after Seth Bullock on the TV show Deadwood), and a joyful English Setter named Audie. Virago and Bullock also remember and celebrate the life of their awesome American Brittany dog, Pippi, who passed away at the end of 2015. Dr. Virago used to run marathons but now she’s too old for that sh*t, so she runs half-marathons instead. She can be reached at drvirago2 [at] gmail [dot] com.
