Rebecca Cameron completed her doctorate at the University of Toronto in Canada, and her main areas of teaching and research interest are modern drama and 20th-century British literature. She has published several articles on 20th-century British drama on such subjects as suffrage drama, women's drama of the interwar period, the reception of Noel Coward, and the function of games in modern dramatic works. She also participated in the development of an extensive, collaboratively authored digital resource, Orlando: Women's Writing in the British Isles from the Beginnings to the Present, published by Cambridge University Press.

Professor Cameron regularly teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in modern British literature, drama, and Virginia Woolf. As Distinguished Faculty in the Honors Program, she also teaches Honors courses in World Literature and Interdisciplinary Arts (Experimental Modernism). She enjoys working with students on theses and independent studies related to her areas of interest, and she has served as director for a range of student projects, including for example World War I poetry; gender and modernism; music and modernism; consumerism in Virginia Woolf; post-apocalyptic vision in Samuel Beckett and Cormac McCarthy; and a production of Noel Coward's Hay Fever.​
