I've been at St Thomas since Fall 2007. I teach French language courses at all levels as well as upper-division courses in French literature and civilization, and I serve as the advisor for the French Club. In 2010 and 2014 I co-taught a J-Term French civilization course in Paris. My research and teaching interests include:

  • French and francophone language, literature, and culture at all levels
  • Discourses of identity and alterity: their construction and reception
  • Conversion, metamorphosis, and hybridity
  • Authority and authorship of historiography and literature
  • The political and cultural history of France and Europe
  • The history and future of la francophonie
  • Translation theory and practice
