Katherine Dautrich is a junior in the College of Arts and Sciences pursuing a Bachelor of the Arts in English. Within her major, she has developed foci in both medieval literature and African-American literature. Her current research focuses on the color line and white supremacy, particularly when pertaining to interracial relationships, within twentieth century American literature. She comes to the fellowship with a deep passion for education, and an interest in promoting learning for the sake of passion rather than simply for the sake of a career. Through her work with IDEAS, she hopes to inspire students to look at their time as Emory as more than just preparation for a pre-professional track, and help them take advantages of all the opportunities the institution has to offer. She currently serves as a residential fellow for IDEAS, working with first year students in Turman Hall. Katherine is also employed as a Visitor Experience Fellow in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and plays on a women's ultimate frisbee team.
