conf. dr. habil. Ileana Marin
Prior to her coming to the United States in 2005, Ileana Marin held the faculty position of Associate Professor at Ovidius University of Constanta (equivalent to an American liberal arts college), where she taught a variety of courses in literature and published three books and several articles. In 2004, as a Fulbright scholar, she discovered the Textual Studies Program at the University of Washington, a field that she always wanted to pursue, but which does not exist as such in Romania. She earned her second Ph.D. in Textual Studies and Comparative Literature from the University of Washington in 2011.
