Tracy recently graduated with a first-class honours degree in Spanish and Portuguese Studies from QUB, where she is currently undertaking a Masters in Modern Languages partially funded by the Musgrave Scholarship. Having also received a Santander Student Mobility Award, she will be undertaking a period of study at the Universidade de São Paulo in Brazil during the academic year, which will allow her to work with a wider range of academics specialising in lusophone postcolonialism. Her writing was recognised by the Anglo-Portuguese Society when awarding her the Ann Waterfall Award 2014 for UK Undergraduate of the Year. This paper drew on aspects of her previous MA degree in Economics from the University of Dundee, allowing her to present a more fully developed argument.
