a Visiting Fellow at the London School of Economics in the Department of International History where I concentrate on cultural diplomacy and issues surrounding soft power. I have a varied career and started my professional life as a dancer. I then moved to creative writing before working at a hedge fund on Wall Street. After raising three daughters, I began my Ph.D. in history at Columbia University. At present, I am particularly interested in women, cultural politics, and biography.
