Ann Marie Jakubowski
Ann Marie graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2015 with a B.A. in English and Spanish and a minor in Journalism, Ethics and Democracy. The more she reads, the more wide-ranging her interests become, but past work has focused on British Modernist poets T.S. Eliot and David Jones, examining their approaches to questions of temporality and systems of representing meaning. Broadly, she is very interested in religion and literature scholarship, particularly its intersection with philosophy of language. An ex-college newspaper editor, she’s retained a deep appreciation for the power of coffee and all things journalism, as well as the useful ability to write like mad under a deadline. In her spare time, Ann Marie enjoys exploring Philly, cooking, and talking about how much she loves her home state of Michigan.
