Hello everyone! I'm Sara, the Assistant Director for the 2018 Oxford Summer Seminar. I'm a Ph.D. Candidate in Comparative Literature in the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at UMass Amherst. My work focuses on modernist and postcolonial literature in English, Italian, and Portuguese. When I am not teaching, researching, or writing, I love to do yoga, hike, and cook. I look forward to meeting you all and getting to know England with you in the summer!
Hey! I’m Emma, a Junior Dean for 2018’s Oxford Summer Seminar. I’m a senior at UMass majoring in Communication and minoring in Education and Resource Economics. I had the pleasure of being a student on the 2016 Oxford program and Junior Dean of the program in 2017. These past two summers have been filled with new wonders, beauties, and people. I can’t wait to go back again! In my free time I love to make collages and watch my favorite Boston sports teams play.
