Katia Mitova holds an MA in comparative Slavic studies from the University of Sofia, Bulgaria and an MA and PhD from the Committee on Social Thought at the University of Chicago. Her research and teaching interests include storytelling as well as the relationship between ethics and aesthetics.

The Basic Program offers a rigorous, noncredit liberal arts curriculum that draws on the strong Socratic tradition of the University of Chicago. There are no tests or papers; instead, we discover, discuss, and disagree about the foundational texts of Western literature, politics, and social thought. Come join the conversation!
