IMG_6497Welcome! Bienvenue! Murakaza neza! Karibu sana!

My name is Kathryn Mara, and I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of African Cultural Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Broadly, I am interested in language, cultural practices, and representations of violence in an east-/central-African context. More specifically, I am interested in the narrative and discursive practices surrounding the 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsi.
