Sara Amato
Sara Amato
General Education

AMDA Faculty since: 2018

Sara Amato is an educator and aspiring novelist. Sara's scholarly interests focus on the evolution of the female anti-hero archetype: the appeal of characters who are neither completely good nor evil, but instead, characters influenced by specific moral codes and circumstances. Sara strives to teach her students the fundamental elements of writing and analysis. Throughout her courses, she includes relevant cultural references alongside classic literature to encourage students to contemplate societal expectations and changes from past to present. Sara asks students to approach literature and writing--like they would the script or lyric--with an open mind to better prepare for their future professional endeavors.
