About Me

Nicole Nolette is the Canada Research Chair in Minority Studies and Assistant Professor in French Studies at the University of Waterloo. From 2014 to 2016, she was a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow affiliated with the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures and the Cultural Agents Initiative at Harvard University.

Her current and future research is at the crossroads of Translation Studies, theatre studies and Franco-Canadian Literature. She is particularly interested how different spectators react to multilingual theatre. Her French-language book, Jouer la traduction. Théâtre et hétérolinguisme au Canada francophone, looks at the games Franco-Canadian bilingual theatre plays with different spectators.

Or listen to a radio interview (in French) from Le Café Show, on Ici Radio-Canada Alberta, about a guest lecture at Campus Saint-Jean on January 6th, 2016.
