Catalina “Kiki” Mackaman-Lofland is a third year Ph.D. student in Modern European History (minor fields: Early Modern European History and African History). Her advisor is Dr. Alice Conklin. She is interested in the production and circulation of academic knowledge in French Algeria and the role of higher education in colonial rule. Her dissertation will examine these themes through the social and intellectual history of the Faculté des lettres d’Alger, the humanities division of the University of Algiers, in colonial French Algeria from the 1930s until the years following Algerian independence in 1962.
