Susan Pedersen

Susan graduated from The College of New Jersey (just down the road from Princeton) in 2009. She wrote her undergrad thesis on Gulliver's Travels and abuses of rhetoric, which will probably inform her graduate studies at least obliquely. Other academic interests include Derrida; Vladimir Nabokov; the strange, wonderful world of Twin Peaks; and making Derrida, Nabokov, and Twin Peaks converge in some sort of brave, edifying way. When she's not mixing media or aspiring to be that high school English teacher who changes her students' lives, Susan enjoys crosswords, MythBusters, and dancing to the various recordings of "Sleepwalk[ing]."
