Areas of Interest
Both my undergraduate degree and my Ph.D were in the area of comparative literature (French, English) and I continue to have strong teaching interests in these areas, specifically in C19th and C20th prose fiction. I also have interests in translation, particularly French to English, both general and business translation, and in Business French.
