Welcome to French at Montclair State!
Please don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss our graduate programs in French, study abroad, or just to chat in French. The MSU French community cultivates creative opportunities for speaking French, from “salons de conversation,” films, and immersion day experiences in NJ and New York City to making crêpes, beignets, and bûches de Noël while listening to French-language music in the residence halls. You can follow these on our web site or via Twitter (http://twitter.com/msufrench). We also have wonderful partnerships and study abroad opportunities in France and Quebec.
I teach a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate courses related to French language, literature, and culture, with particular emphasis on the medieval period and the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. I currently serve as Book Review Coeditor of Nineteenth-Century French Studies, and as a board member of the Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies Association.
