Katherine is an English major from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. In her time at the Center for Documentary Studies, she has focused primarily on audio documentary and is interested in blending her literary interests with this form. Her capstone project, The Apocalypse in Your Living Room, uses interviews, audio clips, and narration to document recent disaster movies and what they have to tell us about our culture and its concerns about the family.

A hearty thanks to John Buse, Gunther Peck, and Len Tennenhouse for their time and expertise, and to Gustavo Alvarez for his guidance and creative collaboration in the graphic design.
