Associate Professor of Romance Studies
Associate Professor of German Studies
- My first name is Dutch, my last is Polish and I work on Italian literature from a comparative perspective.
- The German-language and English authors I write about are ones you probably know, such as Kafka and Woolf. You may not have heard of the Italian ones: Italo Svevo and Igiaba Scego are two of my favorites.
- Some of my Italian authors even have initials other than I.S., but I can tell you about them in person.
- I enjoy hearing about my students’ wide range of interests, thinking about how many different Dukes there are, and learning about the Duke worlds I do not know.
