Tell us about yourself!
I’m interested in Southern Gothicism and the intersection of medicine and literature. I’m currently also working on a historical fiction novel; fingers crossed that it’ll be finished by next year!
Why did you choose Lehigh?
I chose Lehigh because it seemed to be a very interesting but almost secretive place – one of those hidden University gems your read about. Plus, there was just something about the social justice component of the Lit program that struck with me.
What is your favorite book outside your field of study?
Outside of my field, I would say that my favorite book is The Rivals. There’s something very fresh, very contemporary and very comical about the love tangle in the play.
What are you most looking forward to this year?
I’m really looking forward to the chance of finishing a paper and presenting at the next conference hosted by the English department!
