Mary Brown '98

I'm still in the PhD program in Comp. Lit. at Berkeley, though I am not physically there at the moment. After passing my qualifying exams in 2003 and taking a year to put together a dissertation project, I am now spending a year in Paris on a Chateaubriand fellowship, researching and writing my dissertation on the exchanges between courtly poetry and the medieval encyclopedia at the end of the 13th century.
