DR. CATHERINE LOSIER
Dr. Catherine Losier projects are at forefront of the research on the colonial Atlantic world and seek to document the singularity of French colonies as well as the connectivity between French territories of the North Atlantic, the Caribbean and the South Atlantic.

My research focus is on French ceramic production and distribution in
the New World after 1763, from the perspective of Saint-Pierre and
Miquelon. Using material culture and comparative analysis I will
contribute to the reconstruction of French trade networks in the
Atlantic through the 18th and 19th century.

My research focuses on the lifeways of various people within the Saint-Pierre et Miquelon migratory fisheries, with particular attention given to the lives of working women and children. Integrating both material culture and historical records, my research will contribute to an intersectional understanding of how poverty, age, and gender contributed to the lives of Saint-Pierre et Miquelon’s people from the seventeenth to the twentieth centuries.
My research focuses on engaging with material culture, specifically ceramics excavated from Fort Louis, Placentia, to deduce and explore socio-economic shifts during the French period of occupation. By building typochronologies and exploring wealth expression in the material record, I will be able to examine how Placentia grew and became increasingly involved with the Atlantic network.
