Samantha Sorensen

Sam graduated from Immaculata University in 2013 with a BA in English. Her senior thesis explored representations of consciousness and reality and their respective relationships to time in Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury; also, her honors thesis discussed Burroughs's Naked Lunch and addiction as a grand metaphor to substantiate the plasticity of the human mind. Sam's academic interests mostly lie in the intersection of literature and philosophy, and she is quite taken with postmodern and postcolonial literature. Outside of academia, she enjoys travel (particularly London), cats, coffee, poetry slams, awful jokes, and Bob's Burgers.
