Susanne M. Westerhoff-Uprety

Professional Title: 

Doctoral Student
Research Assistant, Teaching Assistant


Thompson 710



My name is Susanne Westerhoff-Uprety. I am a recent Massachusettsan (yes, that is actually a word), having moved here only 3 years ago from the great state of Minnesota.


My interests have evolved into a preoccupation with spatial politics, gender studies, and examinations of monogamy and other relationship forms. I am particularly interested in the creation of relational structures and the exercise of power through social institutions. Additional academic interests concern International Relations and environmental politics. When I am not studying, sleeping or working, I can be found meditating and/or exercising. Once or twice a year I surface and contact my family, reassuring them that I am still alive and have not yet turned into a book.
