Professor of French

Tatem Arts Center, Room 211


I have been teaching at Hood since 1994. I've published articles in journals such as L'année stendhalienne and Nineteenth-Century French Studies and have contributed chapters to several collections of essays. My first book, Maternal Subjectivity in the Works of Stendhal, was published by the Edwin Mellen Press in 2001.

Now I'm working on a book on representations of breastfeeding in nineteenth-century France. I teach a variety of courses on French literature, language and culture, as well as interdisciplinary courses in English for the Honors Program. I am proud to have won the Mortar Board Award for Excellence in Teaching in 1998. I also serve as a freshman adviser and the faculty adviser to the French House and to the Hood chapter of Pi Delta Phi, the French national honors society.
