Elisabeth Bloom, GS, FIT

University Administrative Fellow

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of French & Italian. Before coming to Princeton, I received a Bachelor of Music degree from Vanderbilt University's Blair School of Music, with a double major in French language and literature. I have been performing as a cellist and a singer since the age of eight, and I have played at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, and the United Nations, as well as in France, in China, and at festivals around the United States. In addition to my interests in nineteenth- and twentieth-century French literature and music , I am an enthusiastic language pedagogue. I have taught undergraduate courses on campus, have been an instructor and a tutor for the Prison Teaching Initiative (part of the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning), and have twice taught for the Princeton Graduate School Summer Language Program. 

"Beyond the university level, there are so many different settings in which we as Princeton graduate students will be able to thrive post-graduation. I have always been passionate about teaching in an independent school setting, and I participated in this year's Carney Sandoe FORUM/DEIB in Philadelphia, where I interviewed with a wide variety of schools and met other candidates. Working with Carney Sandoe is a wonderful way to meet with independent schools looking to hire new faculty; I came away from the conference with so much confidence in my professional goals! As a University Administrative Fellow, I organized a panel for the 2023 GradFUTURES forum that will celebrate independent-school teaching as a post-Ph.D. career option."
