Thesis Title

“Creating the Collective”: An exploration of the methodology used to represent a united community within 20th century Andean testimonio sindicalista."


After leaving school, I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Reading, graduating with First Class Honours in Spanish and History in the Summer of 2020. During this period, I spent a year in Spain working at a Valencian secondary school as an English Language Assistant. Following my undergraduate studies, I completed a Master of Research degree in Latin American Studies at the University of Liverpool, graduating in Winter, 2021. Immediately after the completion of my Master’s, I began a PhD in the same discipline, focusing on Latin American testimonial literature and, specifically, the representation of Andean organised labour within these sources.
