Alumni Update: Britt Newman

Britt taught in the English program from 2004 to 2006. He was Lead Teacher his second year.

My doctoral studies in Spanish at the University of North Carolina are going well. I'm continuing to specialize in contemporary Cuban literature, and within that field I'm most interested in literature written by children of bi-national, Russian-Cuban families (polovinas, as they call themselves). I'll take my PhD exams in September, and hopefully I'll be able to defend a dissertation prospectus by December.

The family is doing very well. Alex is 4 now, and we're expecting a baby girl in November. As for how my time in Vladimir continues to affect my life, I had an unexpectedly Russian experience in Spain (where we spent the 2008-09 school year). We met quite a few Russians in Seville, and our best friends were Belorussian immigrants. It was interesting to be temporary members of the Russian diasporic social group there, celebrating Orthodox Easter, shopping at the Russian store in our neighborhood, etc.
