Hello! I teach in two departments:

  • French & Francophone Studies Department: Languages, Literary and Cultural Studies
  • Cross-Cultural Studies Department: A&I seminar CCST 100 «Growing Up Cross-Cultural»
  • (+ InterDisciplinary course: Civil Discourse on a Diverse Campus)

In the past, I have taught courses about France's relationship with its immigrant population, and compare social and immigration issues between Paris and Montreal and many courses about French-Speaking North America. My research focuses on writers who are caught between two or more cultures, languages, territories and whose stories center around being in existential exile. Similarly, my course on "Growing Up Cross-Culturally" examines life through the lens of different cultures, and I explore what it means to be a cross-cultural being. I'm basically obsessed with Identity. Recently, I have found a way to combine my research and my artist endeavors through graphic novel projects. My new adventure: Civil Discourse on a Diverse Campus, a program starting Fall 2016 to create a living-learning community with students who are excited about creating a residential cohort that will learn how to tackle important issues and how to add our local voices to the global challenges. Otherwise, my favorite things to do on campus are:

  • chat with students over coffee, tea or lunch
  • walk through the Arb
  • check out the comics section of the Libe
