Catia Dignard


Catia Dignard - a PhD student in our Department - will present some of her research as part of the Senior Doctoral Fellow Speakers Series at New College.

Catia's dissertation examines the topic of linguistic representations of black characters in contemporary Cuban fiction, and how these reflect evolving notions of nationhood, class and race relations on the island. Her doctoral research is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (2020-2022), and draws upon literary and critical theory (postcolonial, critical race and disability studies), sociolinguistics and anthropology. She has been a Junior Fellow of Victoria College (2019-20) and is currently a Northrop Frye Centre Doctoral Fellow (2020-21).
