My background in literary studies and my Eastern European upbringing informs my particular perspective when talking about culture. The focus of my classes is how culture functions in the context of a changing world. This might be related to changes that digitalization has brought upon us (INTL-I 305: Culture in the Digital Age) or rooted deeper in time and exploring questions about representation, identity, and communication (INTL-I 205: Culture and Politics).
