2023–2024 Interns

Alexandra Duff ’24

Office Hours:       
Monday: 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.       
Tuesday: 11:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m.

Hi, I’m Alexandra—one of the International Studies interns this year! My concentrations in the major are English and French & Francophone Studies. In this vein, I’m interested in the role that language and literature play in facilitating cross-cultural understanding. I spent last year exploring this focus abroad while studying at the University of Oxford. Outside of the classroom, I contribute to the Vassar Critical Journal and love to take ballet classes and perform as a member of the Vassar Repertory Dance Theatre.

I’m happy to chat about anything relating to the IS major and study abroad! I look forward to speaking with you during my office hours (please schedule a time to meet) and answering questions you may have at aduff@vassar.edu.

Emily Tieu ’24

Office Hours:       
Tuesdays & Thursdays 9:00 a.m.–11:00 a.m. & by appointment

Hi! My name is Emily (she/her) and I am one of the IS academic interns this year! My concentrations are in Political Science and Education. Additionally, I am a double correlate in Russian Studies and Prison Studies. I love the IS major because of its flexibility and collaborative spirit. A few of my favorite classes are EDUC/INTL 381: Refugee Resettlement, AFRS 248: Global Africa & EDUC 255: Race, Representation and Resistance in US Schools. Last year, I studied Peace and Conflict Studies with SIT’s Balkan program, based primarily in Belgrade, Serbia. On campus, I am also involved in the Vassar Repertory Dance Theater (VRDT) and Asian Students’ Alliance (ASA).

Please email etieu@vassar.edu if you have any basic questions or need to schedule an appointment—will meet students on the 2nd floor of the Gordon Commons/Deece.
