Listing #145339

Looking for Private Space or Entire Home | Willing to Housesit
Monthly Budget: Minimum USD $100 | Maximum USD $1000
Last Updated 36 days ago


I am starting my first position post-Phd institution, and I will have a fairly heavy teaching load this fall. I am currently living in Connecticut with my partner who is getting his Phd at UConn. We would like to continue living together, but I need something near Smith College, and he needs to be near UConn. I am planning to visit him on weekends, unless I find a pet/house-sitting gig. In the event that I find such an arrangement, I would ask that he be able to visit me in the home. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you think that our needs might be complementary .

About Me

I'm in the field of French studies, with a focus on intercultural exchange in the early modern period. I began my studies at the University of Oklahoma (BAs and MA), not far from my home. I've since lived in France, Austria, Morocco, and Virginia USA, where I completed my PhD in August 2020. I currently live in Connecticut, and I'm looking forward to moving to Massachusetts soon.
