Co-Host of The Slavic Connexion

Eliza is a first-year graduate student in Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies at UT, returning to CREEES (and the podcast!) to continue the research she began as an undergraduate with the department. Her research interests include conceptions of prestige and belonging in cultural spaces, the malleability of white identity, and the co-optation of origin stories and myth as a rhetorical strategy. Outside the department, she practices Krav Maga, reads a lot of science fiction, tries to get people from the department to hang out with her, and spends time with her cat, Raskolnikov.

Eliza has hosted three Episodes.
