Anne Burke is a PhD candidate in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures. Her work explores that way in which thinking about language often becomes a site for working through issues of social and personal identity. She is particularly interested in early-twentieth-century universal language projects. Her dissertation explores the relationship between language and meaning in Velimir Khlebnikov's utopian vision, with a focus on the difficulties of communication and persuasion inherent to his experimental poetic and universal language.
Originally from Austin, TX, Anne received her B.A. from Wellesley College before coming to Stanford. She enjoys reading, sailing, cooking, and travelling.
