Faculty

A native of Houston, Texas, I received my B.A. in Russian Studies from Barnard College in 2006. I am currently a doctoral student in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Before entering graduate school, I worked as the International Program Coordinator at the Moscow Art Theater. Since beginning my graduate studies, I have taught Russian at UW-Madison and the Davis School of Russian at Middlebury College. My research interests include gender relations in 19th-century Russian culture, Russian and Polish theatre and film, performance studies, and the public humanities. I am currently working on my dissertation, which examines the commodification of marginal women in 19th-century Russian literature and visual culture.
