Sharon Gurung

Sharon Gurung

CDVL Tutor

I am a political science major for the class of 2021. I enjoy reading different genres of books. I have a huge collection of tea, so I’m always up to discuss politics and books over a cup of tea. When I’m not obsessing over tea, or studying, I do photoshoots around campus and Atlanta.

Zubaidah Farhan

Zubaidah Farhan

CDVL Tutor

Zubaidah is an International Relations and English double major and a second year tutor in the CDVL. She enjoys exploring disciplines that are concerned with how the social and political spheres operate–namely through philosophy. She loves to deconstruct complex concepts may they be philosophical, political, or even digital! If you don’t see her reading or studying for class or pleasure, you’ll find her in the CDVL either developing and custom-designing WordPress websites, creating flyers for organizations around campus, editing videos on iMovie, teaching herself some Adobe software, or day dreaming of owning every Dolce & Gabbana fashion piece in the world!

Anastasia Owen

Instructional Support Fellow

As one of the founders of the CDVL, I have a love for website design and innovation. My role here  involves teaching within the classroom and providing extra support for digital literacy and administration outside of the classroom. Having a long history in studio art is also serves as an asset towards visual literacy as well as my personal passion in design.

I act as the tech liaison for the CDVL. My role is to help with departmental projects and planning. While my main focus is assisting the graduate programs with their technical and tutoring needs, I also support undergrad on an as-asked basis. 

Nicole Stamant

Assistant Director - Faculty

Dr. Stamant’s work takes as its primary focus historically marginalized populations and historically marginalized forms of literature: Life Writing Studies, ethnic American literatures, and the literatures of gender and sexual minorities. She is the author of Serial Memoir: Archiving American Lives (Palgrave 2014), and her journal articles on gender, race, ethnicity, trauma, foodways, and graphic narrative have appeared in ARIEL, MELUS, a/b: Auto/Biography, South Central Review, The Hemingway Review, and Studies in Comics, among others. Most recently, she has contributed to the edited collections American Literature in Transition: 1970-1980 (2018) and The Postcolonial Subject in Transit: Migration, Borders, and Subjectivity in African Diaspora Literature (2018). She is currently working on a book manuscript, titled “Light, Bright, Mixed, Mulatto, Biracial, Black: Memoirs of Race, Color, and Belonging,” which looks at a number of contemporary memoirs by African Americans through the lenses of hospitality and hauntology about their experiences being light-skinned and/or biracial. This manuscript project also incorporates creative nonfiction: biographical and autobiographical sketches of Stamant’s own family and ancestral history. In 2018, she received Agnes Scott’s Vulcan Materials Company Teaching Excellence Award.
