Dr. Erin Katherine Krafft received her PhD in Slavic Studies from Brown University in 2015. She is currently working on a book tentatively titled Gender and Justice: Learning Through Cases, co-authored by Dr. Susan Krumholz and Dr. Jo-Ann Della Giustina. She is also working on two chapters for edited volumes; the first involves an analysis of paradoxes in the sexual politics of the transnational far-right, and the second examines the translation of "gender" in Russia, both linguistically and culturally. With a background in Slavic Studies and Russian culture, Dr. Krafft brings transnational understandings of crime and justice and the relationship between the state and the citizen into both her teaching and research.

Dr. Krafft also teaches about and researches education and pedagogy. She is a Leduc Center for Civic Engagement Service-Learning Faculty Fellow, and in both service-learning courses and traditional courses, she is interested in dissolving the walls between the classroom and the rest of the world. She also researches and develops both theories and practices that can create an educational environment that is conducive to the development of students in particular and society in general.
