Catherine (Catey) Boyle
Catherine (Catey) Boyle entered the International History Ph.D. program in the Fall of 2018. She studies comparative legal classifications of race in the French and British empires following the Haitian Revolution as a means of unpacking contemporary (post)colonial iterations of race and power. She plans to incorporate race, capital, sexuality, and gender in her research, spanning from Hong Kong, to the Caribbean, to North Africa, to Europe and the United States. Catey received her B.A. from Tufts University in History and Middle Eastern Studies. Her work prior to entering the Ph.D. program was in education, with a focus on anti-bias and socio-emotional learning. She has taught English language learners of all ages in New Orleans and Hong Kong.
