Maria Kovalchuk

I am a second-year PhD student in Classical Studies. My current research interests include imperial Greek literature (especially travel narratives), reception, and literary theory. I am also pursuing the Graduate Certificate in Global Medieval Studies.

Before arriving at Penn, I received my BA from Northwestern and my MPhil from Cambridge, both in Classics. I have also studied at the American and British Schools in Athens, and I have interned at the Field Museum and the Getty Villa.
