Academic Specialties and Other Interests
I am a professor of Russian literature and culture, and I also teach courses in the college’s Writing Program. I’m originally from southeast Pennsylvania, but I have been living in the Midwest since I began my graduate studies at Northwestern University.
I’ve been at Beloit College for over three decades (hard to believe sometimes!), and I love it here–the community is close-knit, and the students constantly inspire me. It’s really rewarding to work with students who bring such diverse talents, perspectives, and life experiences to the table; I learn something new from them every day. Really, could there be a better job?
Outside work, I like to explore new places, both near and far, and I look forward to resuming my travels once the pandemic has passed!
