Welcome to Amanda Ricci, a new COHDS-based post-doctoral fellow


We would like to welcome Dr. Amanda Ricci, who is joining COHDS as a new post-doctoral fellow for the next six months thanks to the FRQSC-funded Montreal History Group. Dr. Ricci recently defended her PhD at McGill on “Thereʼs No Place Like Home: Feminist Communities, Social Citizenship, and (Un)Belonging in Montrealʼs Long Womenʼs Movement, 1952-1992.” The thesis examined previously unexamined feminist histories, revealing how members of various Montreal-based women’s organizations envisioned, defined, and fought for emancipation and autonomy. Building on this work, Dr. Ricci’s time at COHDS will be spent delving further into oral history method, theory and ethics as well as collaborative approaches to research. She has published in Left History, and has a forthcoming article in Recherches amérindiennes du Québec as well as in the edited collection, Womenʼs Activism and “Second Wave” Feminism: Transnational Histories. She joins Drs. Karoline Truchon, Stéphane Martelly, and Lilia Topouzova as COHDS-based SSHRC or FRQSC post-doctoral fellows.
