About

Under the supervision of Dr. Caroline-Isabelle Caron, my PhD project will most likely address both the narrative and historical memory of the Great Depression using a variety of sources (visual and literary among them). I am particularly interested in exploring the question of how identities are formed and constructed inside the working class in different regions of the world, in this case, Canada, United States and Chile
