Evan Strouss hails from New Hampshire. He came to Berkeley in the fall of 2018 after receiving his BA in German Studies and Comparative Literature from Brown University, and his MA in Comparative Literature from Dartmouth College. He is a student of the early modern period, with a particular interest in pursuing a comparative project of the European baroque through the “northern” and “southern” lyric traditions and their intersection with questions of political and theological identities. He is also interested in exploring the visual and musical cultures of the period in dialogue with the poetic.
Outside of the classroom, Evan is a classical singer and an avid hiker.
