Born and raised in Portland, Oregon and spending most of her time in the wild, Katherine Lahti learned how to explore, which is not something most people can really do but which is at the heart of academic life. Her classes are an exploration of the edges of human possibility, be it Dostoevsky’s questions about morality or issues of meaning in linguistics. Her research is a reporting of her wanderings in Russian culture, and it is always her hope she can lead her students to where she has been and what she has found.
