Prix de Faculté: Mémoire de Maîtrise 2015
A graduate of the University of Lausanne, I have been pursuing a PhD in American Studies in this institution since February 2016. My areas of specialization are cultural studies, critical theory and environmental humanities. Owing to a diversified curriculum, I have developed an interdisciplinary profile and my interests lie at the crossroads of disciplines ranging from continental philosophy to political economy and sociocultural anthropology. My doctoral project interrogates the cultural causes of unsustainability in the US, and more specifically the relationship between dominant narratives underlying national identity and the unsustainable environmental discourse and practices that have accompanied its economic and cultural development.
