Lidia Tripiccione, GS, SLA

Social Impact Fellow

I was born and raised in Italy, where I earned my BA in foreign languages (German and Russian) and my MA in Philosophy of Language. After that, I moved to Princeton and I am currently a rising fifth-year student at the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures. I am interested in the reception of Russian and Soviet theories of literature in the USA and several European countries during the Cold War. 

"I took an Introductory Data Analysis Class last fall semester (SML 201) and quickly became very interested in the topic. GradFUTURES, provided me with the perfect opportunity to better my data analysis skills while working on a project - the trends in enrollments in languages other than English in American universities on the basis of the Modern Language Association database - that I find highly stimulating. In general, I would advise students, especially in the Humanities, to take some classes outside of their department and to make the most out of what a university like Princeton has to offer." 

"I found out about the Social Impact Fellowship with MLA through the GradFUTURES mailing list and decided to consult with James Van Wyck about it. James was very helpful: not only did he guide me through the application process, but he also gave me great advice about professional development."
