Alice entered the Ph.D. program in Comparative Literature in Fall 2012. She is interested in intersections of poetics, sexuality, and political resistance in twentieth-century narrative prose, particularly in Russia and Latin America. Queer theory, postmodernist thought and aesthetics, and the Frankfurt School have influenced her approach to the study of literature.
