About Me:

I have lived in China for four years: for the first two years, I lived in Xi’an, taught at 西安交大 and studied Chinese as foreign language there as an undergraduate; for the last two years, I have lived in Sanya and have taught a wide variety of courses at Sanya University. I am extroverted and have many hobbies, including playing Chinese chess, playing the Chinese flute (笛子), practicing Chen style taijiquan, reading literature, traveling, jogging and kitesurfing. I have taught literature and writing for many years at U.S. universities and participated in conferences in China, Great Britain, the U.S. and France. I also speak many languages: Serbian, French, Spanish, Chinese and English. I enjoy teaching at Sanya because of the beautiful weather and because of the wonderful students at the university.

Education:

B.A. in Anthropology and French Literature from Binghamton University in New York. Graduated with High Honors.

Ph.D. in Comparative Literature at the University of Buffalo, New York.

Experience:

I have taught at a wide range of universities and colleges in the United States. I taught at the University of Maine at Presque Isle, Saint Paul’s College in Virginia, and Saint Augustine’s University in Raleigh, North Carolina. I have also taught at numerous community colleges in Arizona, California and Virginia. I have over twenty years of teaching experience in the United States, and I have presented papers, attended conferences, and written two books on literature and literary theory. In China, I taught English for undergraduate and graduate students at 西安交通大学. This is my second year at Sanya University. During this time, I have also presented a paper at an international conference at Shanghai University.

Skills:

I have helped translate documents into English, and I have also done work as an interpreter. I can play the Chinese flute and have been featured on a CCTV documentary dealing with traditional Chen style taiji. I am polylingual and can speak many different languages. I am also a writer and have done editing work in the past.
