Congratulations to MLCS' Malou Brouwer who recently received a 2024 Graduate Student Teaching Award!

Malou Brouwer is a PhD candidate in Transnational and Comparative Literatures in MLCS. For her doctoral research, she combines author interviews with analysis of Indigenous women’s poetry to show how multilingual poetry contributes to resisting colonialism and encouraging decolonization across languages. Malou recently taught one of her dream courses, "Indigenous Literatures and Decolonization," where she realized how cool teaching can be! She has also taught world literature, postcolonialism, and Indigenous literature in English and French. She is an avid reader and enjoys volleyball, the occasional swim, bike rides (summer) and walks (winter), and photography. It’s her dream to one day visit Greenland and Antarctica.
