I am currently writing my Master’s thesis at UNIL on the role of the corpus as a model of the historical phenomenon of language use in relief letters from the LALP collection, focusing on gendered discourse. My main contributions to the LALP project are letter transcriptions and general assistance in the different steps of the work on the corpus.
Before becoming involved in the LALP project, I completed a teaching degree in French as a Foreign Language (UNIL, 1989) and an MA in English and French Philology and Scandinavian Languages (Helsinki University, 1991). For many years, I was active as a language teacher, pedagogical supervisor, and Teacher Trainer, working in several countries (Finland, Spain, Switzerland). I have also invested myself in textile coaching and tutoring (Switzerland, Finland, Colombia) after a Certificate and Diploma in Technical Hand Embroidery from the Royal School of Needlework (UK, 2002 and 2012). In 2019, I started a second MA in Digital Humanities and English at UNIL and have the intention to continue with a PhD in connection with the LALP project.
