Annica Schjött-Vonèche

Ph.D. 2009

Annica Schjött-Vonèche earned her Ph.D. from Northwestern University in 2009, and taught as a lecturer in 2010. Her dissertation, Rewriting the Past: Memory, History and Narration in Four Novels on the Maghreb, examined alternative ways of representing memory and history in postcolonial Maghreb. Her secondary interests include literature from other parts of the Francophone world, Italian and Scandinavian languages and literatures, as well as migrant literature and second language acquisition. In addition to her Ph.D., she holds a B.A. in Comparative Literature and linguistics and an M.A. in French. As part of her Master studies, she attended classes at the University of Québéc in Montréal, and has since returned repeatedly to Montréal in order to perform research on Québécois literature and culture, thanks to grants from Northwestern. Annica has a long experience of teaching language and literature at Northwestern and abroad. At Northwestern, she has taught classes in French language and French and Francophone literature for the Department of French and Italian as well as for the School of Continuing Studies. She has also been a teaching assistant in classes on Italian literature and culture. In 2005 she was awarded a mention for Distinguished Teaching by a Graduate Student by Northwestern’s College of Arts and Sciences and in 2008 she won a Dissertation Fellowship by the Northwestern Graduate School. She has published in Expressions Maghrebines and has presented papers on Maghrebi, West African and Québécois literature on conferences in the US and abroad.
