Stephanie Tsank, University of California, San Diego
Stephanie Tsank recently received her BA in Literature/Writing from the University of California - San Diego. She swallowed The Bell Jar whole one night during her sophomore year and has been fascinated by Plath's haunting voice ever since. In the fall she plans to pursue a MA in Liberal Studies in New York City at the CUNY Graduate Center with an emphasis in Literature and Film Studies. She is currently revising her undergraduate honors thesis, which explores the way in which Andrei Tarkovsky's film Mirror and Yuri Norstein's cult animation classic Tale of Tales are structured in opposition to repressive socio-political policies in the 1970s era Soviet Union.
