Biographical history

Diana Patterson was a professor of English in the faculties of Arts and Communication Studies at Mount Royal University. She began her career at Mount Royal in 1991 and retired in 2013 after 23 years. As the acting chair of the Technical Writing program, she was instrumental in developing the Technical Communication Degree. Patterson is also well known as a Harry Potter expert and has published several papers and an edited book, "Harry Potter's World Wide Influence", on the subject. Patterson is currently working on a book about the history of the Mount Royal Conservatory and has been an invaluable resource in developing the University Archives and capturing the institution's history. In 2014 Patterson was selected by the University Board of Governors as Professor Emerita for her ongoing commitment to Mount Royal. Additionally, the SIGDOC (Special Interest Group for Design of Communication) offers the biannual Diana Award, named after Patterson who was a past president, to organizations, institutions, or businesses for their long-term contributions to the field of communication design.
