Catherine (Catey) Boyle
I am a Ph.D. candidate in the History Department with a secondary field in the studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality. As an historian of French Empire and the Modern Middle East, I study transregional constructions of identity and belonging in North Africa in the 18th and 19th centuries.
I hold an M.A. in History from Harvard University, and a B.A. in History and Middle Eastern Studies from Tufts University. Prior to entering the graduate program, I received a Fulbright to teach in Turkey, and taught Kindergarten and First Grade in New Orleans. I also worked with adult English-language learners in Hong Kong.
When I'm not teaching and researching, I'm doing actions with the Boston chapter of SURJ (Showing Up for Racial Justice), watching K-dramas, and roller-skating.
