Catalina “Kiki” Mackaman-Lofland is a Ph.D. candidate in Modern European History (minor fields: Early Modern European History and African History). She is interested in the production and circulation of academic knowledge and the role of higher education in colonial rule. Her dissertation, "Algeria's French University: Colonial Higher Education and North African Studies at the Faculté des lettres d'Alger, 1930-1965," addresses these themes in the context of French Algeria by examining the social and intellectual history of the humanities college (Faculté des lettres) of the University of Algiers. Her research has been supported by the Bourse Chateaubriand, the American Institute for Maghrib Studies, and Ohio State University's Presidential Fellowship.
