A Cotutelle brought lots of opportunities for Elodie Vignon

"The opportunity to pursue my degree in two countries, in two cultures, was interesting and rewarding on a personal level, but was also particularly relevant to my work in comparative literature as between these cultures. No doubt, being able to set up a cotutelle for my PhD enriched the quality and depth of ideas I was able to bring to my thesis." – Elodie Vignon


Connecting Indigenous Research & Culture in the Academy & Community

When Alana Fletcher came to Queen’s University to pursue doctoral research in the Department of English Languages and Literatures, she soon got involved with the Four Directions Aboriginal Student Centre. Fletcher began attending the Centre’s events, aimed at enhancing the Queen’s Aboriginal community by balancing their academic, spiritual, physical, and emotional needs. By late summer, on the cusp of her second year, Fletcher was invited by the director of Four Directions to help organize the Indigenous Research Symposium.
