Emily 'Bartzy' Bartz, Graduate Instructor
Office: Minard 318E2
I am a third-year MA English Literature graduate student from Pretoria, South Africa. I grew up in the Philippines and the United States, and attended Faith Academy, an international school for missionary children.
I studied English literature, vocal music, and geography at Minnesota State University-Mankato where I graduated in May of 2010. In my junior year, I studied abroad at King's College London. I was awarded the Norman Adams Award for Excellence in English in 2008 and 2009. In 2010 I was awarded the Youel I Award and I presented 'Beowulf: God, Men, and Monsters' at the Undergraduate Research Conference.
At NDSU, I teach two units of English 120 College Composition using Marjane Satrapi's graphic novel 'Persepolis'. I hope to do my dissertation on Anglo-Saxon culture and the Anglo-Saxon 'Judith.' My non-English interests include martial arts, rugby, traveling, cartooning, and meteorology. Someday I hope to teach in Africa or Asia.
