Mimi is a Bard graduate from the Class of 2006 and is currently in the PhD Program in English at Rutgers University. Mimi continues to be part of Bard by participating on the Literature Program Senior Colloquium Panel in December of 2013. Her article "Modernist Feminist Witchcraft: The Fantastic Scholarship of Margaret Alice Murray and Realist Fantasy of Sylvia Townsend Warner" (Modernism/Modernity, 22:3, Sept. 2015, 565-592) comes partly from her senior project at Bard College. Another article "Scholarly Collaboration for a Feminist New Age in Jane Harrison's and Jessie Weston's Alternative Histories" (Nineteenth Century Gender Studies, Issue 11.3, Winter 2015) also draws from her Bard Senior Project and dissertation at Rutgers.
