FWY Graduate Teaching Assistant

Elisha is a PhD student in the English department focusing on critical literary studies. He received his MA at Georgia State University, where he wrote his thesis entitled, “Transnational Perspectives on Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman." Elisha is currently working for UGA’s FYW Program teaching English 1101 and 1102, and during his studies, he hopes to continue researching the ways in which graphic narrative represents and augments transnational theories of ontology and phenomenology. Elisha lives with his fiancée, Asia (who is also a PhD student in UGA’s Theater and Film department), his dog, Pepper, and two lizards, Zoe the Iguana and Gix the Gecko. In his personal time, he reads, plays video and tabletop games, and tries to balance a physical routine including yoga, weight-lifting, running, and basketball.
