Camargo Foundation Fellowship

Au printemps 2022, j’ai eu l’honneur d’être en résidence de recherche à la Fondation Camargo. Cette résidence est la principale “Core” que la Fondation offre à ses résidents.

Ces 11 semaines m’ont été très bénéfique. J’ai été retenue en  proposant un projet sur l’afrofuturisme et le fantastique en particulier, ainsi que les productions digitales d’afroféministes. Tout au long de la résidence, j’ai eu le temps d’écrire, de parler à voix haute de mes idées à d’autres fellows, et surtout de lire et de relire d’excellents livres.

Je suis extrêmement honorée d’avoir fait partie des fellows de 2022 et heureuse des connaissances que j’ai faites. Ce temps sera à tout jamais gravé dans ma mémoire.

In Spring 2022, I was fortunate to be awarded the Camargo Foundation Fellowship for Spring 2022.

This 11-week residency was really beneficial to me. The project I was working on was about afrofuturism and the fantastic, and afrofeminist digital productions. During the residency, I had the time to write, talk about my ideas to other fabulous fellows, and most of all read and re-read the most excellent books.

It was an honor to be part of the 2022 Spring cohort of fellows and thankful for the people I have met. All in all, this, experience, I will not soon forget.

I won the 3MT People’s Choice Award!

I recently just competed in the 3MT (Three Minute Thesis competition) at Ciné in Athens, GA to explain my research to a non-specialist audience. I won the People’s Choice Award, which is third place, and as opposed to first and second place, the award winner is chosen by the audience.

What an amazing and challenging experience! For me, it served as a reminder to ask myself: who is my audience? I have had to prepare and rehearse for this performance a lot. So much so that it had to be second nature to me!

It was such a great exercise that I will most likely incorporate to classes I teach in the near future.

Have you participated in a 3MT? Would you want to?
