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 addresses these themes in the context of French Algeria by examining the social and intellectual history of the Faculté des lettres d’Alger, the humanities division of the University of Algiers, from the 1930s until the years following Algerian independence in 1962. Her research is supported by external fellowships from the Bourse Chateaubriand and the American Institute for Maghrib Studies.
