    social and psychological contexts. It will explore what it means to be

  • When Ben Randolph ’15 was choosing a college, Dartmouth emerged as a favorite, he says, because of its “excellent study abroad program in Spain, its small size, and the opportunity to work closely with professors.”

    What he didn’t anticipate was just how extensive these faculty research opportunities would be. Randolph is now in the midst of his third faculty research project, helping Associate Professor of Spanish...

  • Originally from Venezuela, I specialized in British and Spanish Literature for my MA in Comparative Literature at Dartmouth. After graduating this summer, I will remain at Dartmouth College to work for the Department of Spanish and Portuguese as the 2012-2013 Resident Advisor to La Casa, the Spanish language affinity house and immersion program.

  • I was born in Brasília, in 1988. Before coming to Dartmouth for the M.A. program, I published a novel and got a law degree at the University of Brasília. My senior thesis was about some mythical aspects of Brazil's Federal Constitution'.

    My research here at Dartmouth is on the aesthetic and dramatic aspects of critical rhetoric in writers like Barthes, Foucault and Derrida (specially in texts that either kill or dissect "The Author"), an attempt to make some sense of the very amusing...

  • I am glad to be at Dartmouth in Hanover, my little haven. What I am doing here is to contemplate every single word in  Aristotle's Poetics while I cultivate my aesthetic experience of The Tale of Genji and Japanese woodblock prints. For instance, heurisko means either "discover" or "invent" in Greek. This verb may illustrate what I do with my reading and writing about literature. I desire either to discover what is not yet disclosed or invent what is not there yet when it comes to the joy of...

  • Prior Education: Kalamazoo College B.A. French 2011

    Columbia University M.A. French Cultural Studies in a Global Context 2012

    My research this year focuses on French Literature on the Death Penalty and theoretical conceptions of the psychopath. Working with Hugo, Camus, Derrida, and Foucault, among others, I seek to demonstrate how the psychopathic figure becomes the remaining executable subject within the modern theologic state.
