Analisa Goodmann is an alumna of UNM College of Arts and Sciences English Department. She graduated cum laude in 2011.
During her career at UNM, she primarily studied 18th century and Victorian literature. Her thesis titled " 'We Neither of Us Perform to Strangers': An Analysis of Performance, Women, and the Making of a Heroine" focused on Jane Austen's heroines, their journeys toward becoming heroines, and this journey's relationship with the heroine's (what Analisa termed) performance of social manners. While at UNM, Analisa also studied political science.
Since graduating from UNM, Analisa has held a variety of jobs, including working for the past few years as a technical editor at a healthcare risk management firm in Albuquerque. In the fall of 2016, she will begin a Master of Liberal Studies program at Dartmouth College, where she plans on studying human rights, transitional justice, storytelling, and how post-conflict politics influence literature
