Arianne Dorval

Arianne Dorval holds a PhD in cultural anthropology from Duke University, where she defended her doctoral thesis on the political subjectivation of Marseille sans papiers in 2014. She has since been working as a professional translator specialized in the field of social sciences and humanities.

Her translations from French to English include Pentecostalism in Brazil: Emotion of the Poor and Theological Romanticism (Macmillan) by the political scientist André Corten and Democracy without Demos by the philosopher Catherine Colliot-Thélène (European Consortium for Political Research).
