Anna White

Anna White has been a supporter and student at GCAS since early 2016. She is honored to assume the function of Director of Admissions at the school she believes is a crucial and compelling alternative to the predominant profit-model of higher education. In GCAS, she sees a community just as much as a college, and she looks forward to supporting this community through the admissions process.

Her own time at university was a practice in the humanities, studying mainly continental philosophy, with concentrations in phenomenology, ethics and linguistics. After her graduate work, Anna taught philosophy, ethics and women’s studies at Front Range Community College in Colorado, USA. Parallel to and following her time in higher education, she has had three children, moved to Europe, and there, has concentrated on her own creative writing practices. For three years, she co-operated an experimental writing group in Amsterdam which used the practice of spontaneous language as a tool and process for individual and social change. She is also an academic editor for graduate students in the Netherlands.

She is delighted to fulfill this role for the GCAS community and looks forward to speaking with current and prospective students about their concerns and questions. Email to anna@gcas.ie
