My name is Alanna Cronk. I am an undergraduate student double majoring in English and philosophy at Georgetown University. I hope to pursue a PhD in philosophy after I complete undergraduate study. This website hosts copies of my work. I would love for you to take a look.
"See that building over there Alanna? That's where I created you with your father."
Okay, so maybe I don't need to go that far back. But, I have always been a very thorough person. What could anyone want to know about me, though? Maybe you want to know about how I cried when I watched the second, fifth, and sixth Terminator movies. Or maybe you would find it interesting that I have a tattoo in honor of Medea— the one that murdered her two children to spite her ex-husband and was subsequently taken up into the heavens by the gods in a chariot. Or maybe it's too soon for that. Maybe we don't know each other like that.
In any case, I am from Southern California. I have lived all around Ventura County and Los Angeles. My family has been in Ventura for centuries—I Barbareño-Ventureño tšumaš.
Outside of academia, I have many eclectic interests: cooking, mechanical keyboards, dogs, photography, aquatic husbandry, and sleep. Inside of academia, I am interested in Indigenous philosophy, philosophy of disability, symbolic logic, applied ethics, rhetoric, and persuasion. I am also a beginner student of my ancestral language mitsqanaqan̓.
I want to be a researcher and create work that is thought-provoking. I want to create accessible, multimedia works like zines and collages and poetry that communicate all the same ideas as the traditional long and wordy academic paper (although, I do plan on writing those too).
