Researcher

Amanda Ricci recently defended her dissertation in the Department of History at McGill University. The project, entitled “Thereʼs No Place Like Home: Feminist Communities, Social Citizenship, and (Un)Belonging in Montrealʼs Long Womenʼs Movement, 1952-1992,” focuses on previously unexamined feminist histories, revealing how members of various Montreal-based womenʼs organizations envisioned, defined, and fought for emancipation and autonomy. She has presented her research at various conferences, including the Canadian Historical Association, the Congrès de lʼIHAF, the Pacific Branch of the American Historical Association, and the Berkshire Conference of Women Historians. She has published in Left History, and has forthcoming publications in Recherches amérindiennes du Québec as well as in the edited collection, Womenʼs Activism and “Second Wave” Feminism: Transnational Histories. Amanda Ricci is also a graduate of Université de Montréal (MA 2009) and Queenʼs University (BA 2007). She is a member of the Montreal History Group.
