Anna-Alexandra Fodde-Reguer


Anna-Alexandra Fodde-Reguer is the new Humanities Research and Instruction librarian. While completing her dissertation, Anna moved to Philadelphia in 2012 and became enamored by the city. She received her Ph.D. in Asian Languages and Cultures from the University of Michigan in 2014. Anna is currently working toward an M.L.I.S. from the University of Pittsburgh. Prior to her position at Haverford College, she was a visiting professor at Saint Joseph’s University. Anna’s research interests include early Chinese religion, early Asian science and technology, and the intersections of art and religious practice. She is a specialist in Chinese divination practices.

In her free time, Anna cultivates orchids, likes to spend time with her cat, takes long bike rides with her husband (a Haverford alum!), photographs her neighborhood, and enjoys visiting museums. Her favorite Philadelphia-based museum is the Institute of Contemporary Art.
