Romance Languages and Literatures Department Chair, I am also an Associate Professor of Romance Languages and Literatures at Pomona College where I teach in the areas of late nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first century French literature, art and culture.
My research mainly deals with the relation between texts, images and aesthetics in the Avant-gardes. I am currently working on a literary, artistic and cultural pursuit of the color yellow.
I have been a research associate for Savoirs des femmes (CRSH Canada 2012-2015), the LACOL co-leader representative for Pomona College (2015-2016), and am still a MDRN research affiliate (large-scale KU Leuven-based research initiative). Part of the exciting organizational staff of the website Littératures Mode d’Emploi, I am also part of the scientific committee of the Revue de Photolittérature, on the review committee of the journal MuseMedusa, and have the honor to be on the editorial board of the Cahiers Benjamin Péret.
