After completing her maturité fédérale at the Gymnase de Burier, Juliette Loesch graduated from the University of Lausanne with a Bachelor’s degree in Modern French and English, with a minor in History. During her undergraduate studies, she spent a semester at the University of East Anglia, in Great Britain, as part of an Erasmus exchange. She then completed a Master’s degree in English and Modern French with a specialisation in Literary Translation at the University of Lausanne, where she also worked as a student assistant at the École de Français Langue Étrangère and at the English department. She wrote her Master’s thesis about the textual and visual metamorphoses of Oscar Wilde’s Salomé under the supervision of Prof. Martine Hennard Dutheil de la Rochère.
She then went back to the University of East Anglia where she obtained a Master’s degree with Distinction in Literary Translation. Under the supervision of Prof. Duncan Large, she wrote a creative-critical dissertation on two short stories by KJ Orr, which she translated into French and analysed in light of their internal networks of signification.
From 2017 to 2022, Juliette worked as a graduate assistant in English and Comparative Literature at the University of Lausanne. She taught BA classes of English Composition and seminars of close-reading and comparative analysis. She also organised the English department’s Cake T-Days, a discussion group for MA students working on their thesis.
Juliette gave papers at local and international conferences, and she has published several articles and two book chapters. In 2020, she also co-edited a volume of conference proceedings entitled Traces et résonances. Ré-écrire, consigner, adapter la danse with Céline Gauthier and Lucas Serol from the French research group, l’Atelier des Doctorants en Danse. She co-organised several conferences and study days at the University of Lausanne, including a study day on Oscar Wilde’s Salomé Across Media in November 2021.
Since last November, Juliette has worked as a production assistant at the Prix de Lausanne, an international dance competition.
