I am a Master’s student from Geneva in English literature and linguistics. My Master’s thesis focused on queer and feminist poetry with a specific scope on the representation of the body, sexuality, and motherhood. Thanks to the classes offered by the English department at UNIL, I have discovered, both in linguistics and literature, the intricate connections between language, social dynamics, and power. Working on the pauper letters is thus an opportunity for me to connect my interest in the history of England with my desire to acquire practical knowledge in the field of digital humanities. Currently, my work for the LALP project is to determine the typology of the pauper letters.
