Richard Mc Laughlin
Richard had the opportunity to study in a department and with faculty at Towson that encouraged interdisciplinarity; thus, he found himself focusing on Philosophy, World Literature, and Cultural Studies, all the while claiming that he was an English Literature student. He decided to transition to Comparative Literature and hasn’t looked back. He is grateful for the support he has received from scholars along the way, including Peter Baker, Jennifer Ballengee, and Wolfgang Fuchs at Towson, and Robert Harvey, Patrice Nganang, and Mary Rawlinson at Stony Brook. He looks forward to developing his skills as a francophile and looking with the estimable faculty at USC on matters of revolution, philosophy and theory, and autobiographical writing, among other things.
