Natalie Dollar (b. 1963) has been a member of the OSU Speech Communications department since 1993, and a member of the faculty at OSU-Cascades since 2002. Now the Associate Dean of Arts and Sciences at the Bend campus, Dollar has focused her scholarly research on cultures that choose to reside outside of the mainstream, a program of work that has led to study of houseless youths in the Seattle area as well as fans of the Grateful Dead music group. Her interview focuses on her southern roots and the impact that her upbringing made on her as an academic and as a person; her research on alternative cultures; and her long experience as a faculty member and administrator at the Cascades branch campus.
