Corina Lacatus was born in 1978 in Piatra Neamt, Romania. From 1996 to 2000, she attended Bucharest University, Romania, from which she graduated with a double major in Scandinavian and Arabic Studies. While still a student, she travelled to Sweden numerous times on different scholarships, and after graduation she spent one year in Sigtuna, Sweden. In 2001 she joined the Germanic/Scandinavian graduate program at University of California, Los Angeles. She is now a doctoral candidate, pursuing dissertation-related research on second generation immigrant writers and artists living in contemporary Sweden. She is planning on spending part of the academic year 2005-2006 in Sweden, meeting with students and researchers interested in similar socio-cultural issues. The innovative nature of her research lies in the inter-disciplinarity of her research, which under the framework of globalism attempts to look at literary and visual representations of a complex cultural phenomenon. Her argument will therefore draw from other related fields, such as art history, socio-cultural anthropology, and not least mass-media and communication studies.
