Since joining the BYU faculty in 1988, she has taught numerous courses in literature, writing and critical theory. James served for several years as the German section head, and as chair of the Department of German and Russian since 2010.

After the publication of her first book, Behind the Mask: Kierkegaard’s Pseudonymic Treatment of Lessing in the “Concluding Unscientific Postscript, James turned her research interests to early German-language women writers. With her colleague Joseph O. Baker, she founded the Sophie Project, with the goal of collecting hard-to-access texts by early women authors and making them available in modern format. Over the past 15 years, with the help of generous funding from the BYU ORCA Office, the College of Humanities and the Women’s Research Institute, this undertaking has developed into the Sophie Mentored Research Project, which has engaged numerous students in textual preparation, editing and research on over 2,000 early women’s texts and musical compositions, which are now freely available to users in the Sophie Digital Library of Early German-Language Women’s Work. She and her students are currently preparing the Critically Annotated Collected Works of Elisa von der Recke, the first volume of which is nearing completion.

James has a Ph.D. in German literature with a minor in philosophy from the University of Utah. She earned a bachelor's degree in music from Weber State College.
