Kristen Davis, ABD

It gives me great pleasure to announce that, after a series of exceptionally well-written exams and a wide-ranging conversation with her committee (Chair Donald Hall, Lisa DiBartolomeo from World Languages, Adam Komisaruk, Lisa Weihman, and yours truly), Kristen Davis has passed her booklist exam and can now write ABD after her name on checks if she wants to. The only anomaly is that, in a discussion that touched on everything from Victorian imperialism to 19th-century Egyptian politics to the gothic to whether the women's room at Vice Versa constituted a queer space, there was no serious discussion of The Mummy.
