Graduate Student Update: Hannah Bradley Kondo

In my first quarter at University of Washington I am taking a course here in the German department with Prof. Annegret Oehme on medieval literature, and a course with Prof. Alys Weinbaum from English on feminist theory. I’m also doing a reading course with Prof. Ellwood Wiggins. I’m enjoying my studies and feel that I’m gaining a lot of essential foundational knowledge. Outside of course work, Sam Romanelli, Jeffery Jarzomb, and I organized the departmental film series for this quarter. In addition, I’m on the organizing committee, with fellow graduate students from several departments across campus, for an interdisciplinary graduate student conference this coming spring. I’ve felt incredibly welcomed into the department and look forward to continuing to grow here intellectually and professionally.
On top of getting to explore University of Washington’s beautiful campus, I’ve had the joy of exploring Seattle. So far, I love the city and all it has to offer. Coming from the landlocked Midwest, I have especially enjoyed the proximity of the ocean, as well as the gorgeous Washington landscape.
