Nicholas Risteen *19, ARC

Assistant Teaching Professor, Penn State
University Administrative Fellow Alum

Nick earned a Ph.D. in the History and Theory of Architecture in 2019 and completed a University Administrative Fellowship with the Princeton University Press.

“Working with Art and Architecture editor Michelle Komie at Princeton University Press as a University Administration Fellow provided an amazing ‘behind the scenes’ experience to a critical component of academic life. Beyond this ‘unveiling’ of the publishing world, the experience also showed me an engaging alternative path for a scholar. Seeing the publishing world as a form of intellectual curation—to evaluate and guide future scholarship in the field—was eye opening for me, and opened up new avenues to explore for post-doctoral life.”
