Reviews by Sophie M. Lavoie
Sophie M. Lavoie conducts research in the areas of women’s writing and social change in Central America and the Caribbean. Her studies focus on women in contemporary Nicaragua during the first Sandinista era (1970-1990), but she is also interested in other revolutionary movements in the area, such as Cuba and El Salvador and in women’s writing in Latin America. Her current research project focuses on the link between women’s writing, empowerment, and revolutionary action during the Sandinista era in Nicaragua. Along with teaching Spanish and Latin American Studies in the Department of Culture and Language Studies at the University of New Brunsick, in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada, Sophie is also an associate faculty member in the International Development Studies program, the Women's Studies program, and the Film Studies Program.
