I am a PhD Candidate in Comparative Literature at the University of Massachusetts Amherst where I teach courses in comparative and world literature. My research interests include post-Soviet Ukrainian literature and film, especially work that addresses questions of nation, memory, and gender, translation studies, and feminist/queer theory. From 2012 to 2014, I taught English at Lesya Ukrainka East European National University as a Peace Corps volunteer.
