Bio

Megan is from Blacksburg, Virginia and is a third-year graduate student in the Department of Romance Studies. She began to study Italian at Gettysburg College, and her year abroad in Ferrara, Italy bolstered her passion for Italian culture and literature. After receiving her M.A. from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2018, Megan spent a year in Parabiago, Italy (Milan) teaching English at an Italian technical high school. She received a Debbie Schenker Archival Fellowship in Summer 2019 to transcribe and research uncatalogued Italian manuscripts at Wilson Library, UNC’s archival library.

Her current research interests include Dante, his treatment of religious and political interaction in the Commedia, manuscript culture, and archival work.
