Stephanie Mary Dedovitch
Stephanie Dedovitch received her Bachelor’s degree from Rider University in 2007 with a double major in Philosophy and American Studies. She graduated both Summa Cum Laude and as a Baccalaureate Scholar. As an undergraduate, she was President of the French Club, Vice President of the Philosophy Club, member of the Honor Key Society, Phi Sigma Tau, Pi Delta Phi, History Club, and Slavic Club. Her undergraduate thesis explored films and public opinion in the 1950s. In 2007, she pursued her Master’s degree at Columbia University in Liberal (American) Studies. At that time urban history began to pique her interest and her Master’s thesis explored the history of water sanitation in Trenton and Newark in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. From 2009 to 2010, she taught American and World history at Bergen County Community College, a period that solidified her love for urban studies and people’s relationship with the environment. An interdisciplinary researcher by training, her research method explores literature, history and art in tandem, attempting to create narratives of depth and dimension. Finally, a published writer of short fiction and poetry, Stephanie hopes to create a framework that merges her passion for the liberal arts with environmental issues facing communities in the American metropolis.
Her research interests include: water and waste, disease, tourism, borderlands, and counter-cultures
