Katherine is a first-year graduate student from Saginaw, Michigan. Born and raised in "the Mitten," as the lower peninsula is fondly known, her undergraduate studies led her to work teaching English to young professionals in La Rochelle, France, before returning to the U.S. to complete her degree. Although she sometimes has trouble finding subjects that don't pique her curiosity, her research interests at Penn State include gender studies, women's studies, the Enlightenment, and Modern literature.
