Chloe Kitzinger
Chloë Kitzinger came to Berkeley with an MA in Russian from the Middlebury Russian School, and a BA in Philosophy from Yale University. Her dissertation, “Illusion and Instrument: Problems of Mimetic Characterization in Dostoevsky and Tolstoy” (2016), offered an account of the creation of lifelike novelistic characters, based on close readings of three Russian realist novels. After Berkeley, she began a postdoctoral fellowship at the Princeton Society of Fellows before becoming Assistant Professor of Russian and East European Languages and Literatures at Rutgers University.
