Academic, Teaching, and Personal Interests

Catalina Florina Florescu earned her doctoral degree in Comparative Literature from Purdue University in 2007. At Wagner, she has been teaching American theater, women's literature, and writing. She is the author of four books: Transacting Sites of the Liminal Bodily Spaces (literary criticism; narrative medicine; human body; attitude to death); Disjointed Perspectives on Motherhood (mothers in literature & motion picture; feminist and literary criticism); Inventing Me/Exercitii de retrait (memoir); and Plays (Kindle edition). She is currently working on a new book project tentatively titled White, Black, Yellow, Digital: Transnational Narratives of Exile.

Dr. Florescu links her passion for teaching & writing with her passion for traveling, considering them both self-enriching tools of discovery.
