About

Katopodis is a doctoral candidate in English at the Graduate Center, CUNY, a Futures Initiative Fellow, and an adjunct at Hunter College.

She has received grants from the Ralph Waldo Emerson Society and New Media Lab as well as a Provost’s Digital Innovation Grant to record sounds at Walden Pond and build a website that maps Walden’s soundscape.

In the past year, Katopodis presented her work: in sound studies in her paper “Counting Long Scales of Time: American Transcendentalism and Creative Attunement to Our Nonhuman Environment” delivered at SLSA 2016 in Atlanta; on feminist pedagogy at NeMLA 2017 in her paper “Teaching Consent in the Composition Classroom using Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew” ; and on the Margaret Fuller Society panel at ALA 2017 in Boston, she presented “Margaret Fuller’s Early Feminist Pragmatic Method.” She now serves as the editor for the Margaret Fuller Society’s website.
