Doctoral Candidate


Rachel Carson Center

Room: 229

Teja Šosterič completed a BA in interlingual communication at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia and an MA in Anglophone Literatures and Cultures at Charles University in Prague, the Czech Republic. Her MA thesis was on American postmodern labyrinthine novels, for which she received the Vilém Mathesius prize.

Her research at the Rachel Carson Center examines how neoliberal ideology shapes both the content and form of contemporary North American literary works that engage with the ecological crisis and its material reality. Her aim is to use literary fiction to gain insight into the ideological causes of the current crisis, as well as the potential future responses in terms of political and social action.

From July 2022 to April 2023 she worked with the Editorial and Communications team at the RCC as an editor.
