Natka Bianchini joined Loyola's fine arts faculty in 2009 as a theatre professor; she teaches courses in theatre history and directing, and directs one production each year for the Evergreen Players. In her role as class dean, Dr. Bianchini serves as a resource and mentor for all undergraduate members of the Class of 2019, and she hopes to help students take advantage of exploring academic and co-curricular options so they can discover what excites them and ignites their interest. Dr. Bianchini holds a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Wellesley College, and a master’s and doctorate in Drama from Tufts University. She is the author of Samuel Beckett’s Theatre in America, published by Palgrave MacMillan Press in 2015.
