Elaine Yee


        Hello, my name is Elaine Yee. I am in the SLAT program to research how American literature rooted in heritage narratives pertaining to non-English speaking cultures can help bi/multi-lingual college freshmen (both American and international) to better attain to a multi-register grasp of Standard American English. Especially interesting to me is fluency across critical domains such as domestic, political, technological, and romantic space(s). My BA in English/Sociology is from Arizona, my MA in American Lit/American Studies is from Duke University Department of English. I have spent time in Beijing and Berlin as a language student. In the next year, I expect to become fluent in Cantonese, as well. I love mountain running, cooking with friends, my dog, and my parents (I am a hometown girl.)
