The Trinity Long Room Hub is delighted to welcome Camila Batista from the University of Sao Paulo.
Camila will be here for a period of research under the Spectress project. Camila Batista is a postgraduate student of Irish Literature at the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. She has been studying contemporary literary representations of the twentieth-century Irish revolutionary period under the supervision of Professor Laura Izarra, PhD.
During her fellowship at Trinity College, Camila will examine the relationship between literary representations of history produced in the Celtic Tiger period and trauma. Ms Batista has been awarded funding by the European Union’s Marie Curie International Research Exchange Scheme Project, “SPECTRESS”.
Under the ‘Identities in Transformation’ theme Trinity is the Coordinator of the SPECTRESS project (Social Practice, Cultural Trauma and Re-establishing Solid Sovereignties) which enables the mobility of staff and students studying how national identities are disrupted by the traumas of history and how societies and nations reshape their collective identities after political and cultural traumas such as war.
