Olivia Loksing Moy ’06

Olivia Loksing Moy is Assistant Professor of English at the City University of New York (Lehman), where she teaches Romantic and Victorian literature. As director of the Lehman English Honors Program and Committee Chair for the Northeast Victorian Studies Association, she has spearheaded diversity initiatives to promote practicable, impactful inclusion in higher education and pave the way for the success of graduate students from all backgrounds. This entails not only building up mentorship and pipeline programs, but also changing the culture of academic conferences, selection committees, and professional societies. Moy recently founded the CUNY Rare Book Scholars, a program that introduces undergraduates to the world of rare book and manuscript research, as well as bibliography and book collecting. She is committed to serving non-traditional students, including transfer students from community colleges and working parents. Her research in nineteenth-century poetry also focuses on translation and world literatures. At Lehman College, she serves on the (Dis)abilities Studies program committee and as faculty advisor for the LGBTQ+ Alliance. She graduated from Princeton in 2006 and earned her Ph.D. in English and Comparative Literature from Columbia University in 2013.
