Regina Chiuminatto

Regina Chiuminatto


University of Wisconsin, Madison

I am a PhD Graduand in Literature. I focus on poetry and how it interacts with philosophy and the history of thought. I am interested in how we understand the past, how it informs our understandings of art and our own time, and what we owe to those long dead.





University of Wisconsin Madison

PhD Candidate, Comparative Literature

My dissertation follows the poetic projects of Rainer Maria Rilke and Marina Tsvetaeva, as well as their correspondence in 1926, the year of Rilke's death.
I focus on the poetics that each elaborates, interpreting their understanding of the structures of poetic discourse through the lenses of the love-relationship and Gaston Bachelard's idea of Phenomenology of Imagination.

University of Wisconsin, Department of Comparative Literature

Teaching Assistant

I worked with students every day, leading discussions and holding office hours where I helped students with their writing or worked through difficult concepts. I also graded tests and papers, and learned how to navigate difficult situations, like how to handle sticky moments around discussions of sensitive topics in class.

University of Wisconsin Madison

Master of Arts, Comparative Literature

My time at Madison was deeply formative on many levels. The master's exams required focus and synthetic thinking under pressure at levels I didn't know I was capable of. Teaching and discussing the difficulties of teaching with my fellow graduate students showed me how to think of work as process. I also volunteered with my union and realized I love organizing.
