Catherine (Katya) Vrtis

Catherine (Katya) Vrtis is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Drama and Dance at Tufts University. Her dissertation, "Black, White, and Red: The Radical Drama of Langston Hughes," considers the writer's plays from his first, Mulatto, to the last written before World War II, the six short plays in the Limitations of Life set. She is interested in the history of radical thought in America, the form and function of propaganda, Russian drama, and the early 20th century artistic avant garde. In 2010 she received the Tufts Graduate School Summer Initiative for Doctoral Studies in the Humanities fellowship to support her dissertation research.
