Katrina is a PhD student specializing in Early Modern Spanish Literature and its relationship to the visual arts, particularly Italian and Spanish painting. She plans to focus her research on representations of women by both men and women writers in 16th and 17th century Spanish drama, poetry and prose, with a particular emphasis on how Biblical and mythological depictions of women influenced these writers via verbal and pictorial interpretations. Katrina graduated summa cum laude with a BA in Spanish Literature from Hunter College in 2010, and received her MA in Spanish Literature from the University of Chicago in 2011.
