Genevieve Amaral '07

After completing her M.A. in Comparative Literature at Dartmouth, Genevieve went on to spend a year teaching English in France and will be beginning a PhD in Comparative Literary Studies at Northwestern University in the Fall '08.

Genevieve credits her experience at Dartmouth with helping her reflect on and develop her own position on what "comparative literature" means.  She's grateful to the various faculty and staff at Dartmouth who helped her find this sense of direction, which in turn helped her select and apply to graduate schools and has given her a sense of her relation to academia, something which can be difficult to establish on one's own.
