Celine Zerna is currently a PhD candidate in English (Literature) at the University of Adelaide. Her PhD thesis "Ethnographic Entanglements: Threads for Feminist (Auto)Ethnography" attends to the work of feminist ethnographers writing in the 1990s through the lens of literary studies to trace the entangled ethical, political, epistemological, and aesthetic quandaries involved in women's writing about other women across cultural boundaries.
Her wider research interests include feminist theory and politics, postcolonial literature and theory, literatures from the (Global) South, French and Francophone literature, poststructural theory, translation theory, feminist ethnography, African-American literature, cross-cultural and diaspora studies.
In 2017, Celine was awarded the University Medal for academic excellence (Undergraduate and Honours).
