The Centre for Interdisciplinary Research on Montréal (CIRM) is pleased to announce the arrival of a new research assistant to its team. As Community Manager, Amélie Ducharme will be actively involved in the dissemination and promotion of our work during the summer. We wish her a warm welcome!
Amélie Ducharme is in the final year of her Bachelor’s degree at McGill University, where she studies French and English literatures. A passionate artist and feminist, she is interested in women authors who, much like her, see writing as a gentle act of liberation. For the end of her undergraduate studies, Amélie is preparing a research/creation project under the supervision of Professor Alain Farah about Québec women’s autofiction. Later on, she wishes to focus on Julie Delporte’s graphic novels during her Master’s degree. In the meantime, Amélie will continue to juggle between several different projects, as she is an editor for McGill’s French literary journal (Lieu commun) and the co-host of a feminist book club.
