I am a graduate student enrolled in a French and francophone studies & pedagogy M.A at the University of Cincinnati. I also teach Intensive Basic French as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at UC.
I have graduated from the Université Toulouse Jean Jaurès (FRA), with a B.A in English studies (US Civilization major) and a M.A in American Civilization from Université Bordeaux Montaigne (FRA).
I have written a thesis for the Université Bordeaux Montaigne (FRA) on the link between knowledge production, lobbying, and firearm regulation in Ohio.
B.A Anglophone Studies: Université Toulouse Jean Jaurès Toulouse, FRANCE, 2020 (Literature, linguistics, translation, civilization of English speaking countries)
M.A Anglophone Studies: Université Bordeaux Montaigne Bordeaux, FRANCE, 2023 (Major in American Civilisation Thesis on knowledge making about gun violence in the US)
M.A Francophone Studies (Ongoing): University of Cincinnati Cincinnati, OH, USA, 2024 (Francophone studies and pedagogy track: classes taken include foreign language teaching, computer-assisted second language teaching, resisting the French national narratives.)
My research focuses on the production of (non) knowledge around firearms in the US.
Over the last 20 years, publicly-funded research on firearms has been banned by the US government. Various types of knowledge emerged from different sources: privately-funded researcher, advocacy groups, associations, etc.
The goal is to understand the role, the impact and the involvment of each actor in such a controversial field.
