Loryn HilfertyLoryn Fallon


Loryn Hilferty is a native of the Philadelphia area and received her Masters of Arts in Italian literature from Rutgers University in 2014 as well as a Bachelor's degree in Italian from Temple University in 2009. Since 2010, she has been teaching courses in elementary Italian as well as accelerated courses in Italian reading knowledge at Rutgers University, Temple University, and Bryn Mawr College. Mrs. Hilferty has also recently served as an instructor and Assistant Director of Rutgers' Italian Department's Summer Study Abroad Program in Urbino, Le Marche. Her interest in Italian language and culture primarily comes from her Italian-American family; however, her scholarly interests pertain not only to the Italian-American experience but to women’s literature, from Isabella Andreini to Anna Maria Ortese, as well as the more widely studied Boccaccio, Pirandello, and Calvino. She is passionate about facilitating language learning through integrating realia and ever-growing technologies into her repertoire.
