Rivky Mondal



Research Interests: 

Literary modernism, criticism


Rivky received a BA in English and Hispanic Studies from the University of Pennsylvania, then an MA in English from Penn State on a graduate fellowship. Literary modernism has been her focus throughout, though she decamps to Beckett often. What occupies her these days, however, is the sensibility of criticism -- moods, states, predispositions -- specifically the amateur and the enchanted. Originally from New York, she grew up in Brooklyn before it was cool.
