Biography:

I am a first-year PhD candidate in the Department of Comparative Literature at the Pennsylvania State University. I’m interested in trauma and affect studies, reader-response theories, cognitive poetics, as well as bibliotherapy and scriptotherapy. My research focuses on literature produced during and/or in the aftermaths of civil wars and dictatorships.
