"I could be Harry Potter... I'm basically a wizard."
"No... I meant the other Cambridge, the older one."
"Taylor Swift is the living, breathing reincarnation of Jane Austen's 'Emma', as long as we understand Clueless as a necessary step in the transmogrification."

These are the hallmarks of a conversation with Anouska. Having completed her B.A. in Natural Sciences at Cambridge (yup, the other one), Anouska decided to get an M.Phil. and a Ph.D. in History of Science, before transitioning fully into the humanities with a lectureship in History and Literature here at Harvard. She likens herself to a Renaissance Man: she's covered the full spectrum of intellectual pursuits, she can run a mile in stilettos, she knits, she believes she can salsa, and she tweets faster than Kanye can compliment himself.  Oh, and she built an Ice Bar for the Quad last year. #realtalk

Anouska is delighted to be joining the PfoHo community as a Resident Tutor (apparently "Wizened Cantab" and "High-Heeled Tweeter" were already taken). If you want to talk about history, share cat videos, discuss life in London or the inception of a new reality show, you can find her on Holmes 3.
