  • Interests: 20th and 21st century French and Francophone literature, cognitive approaches, literature of the German Occupation of France during WWII, diaries and other life writings, autofiction, individual and collective memory

    In 2011-2012, I studied at Middlebury College in Vermont and in Paris, where I completed my M.A. in French Civilization, Society, and Culture. My thesis, titled “Occupier-Occupied Relations in German Paris,” analyzed daily relationships between Germans and Parisians from 1940-1944 in the City of Light.

    My dissertation will explore memory and identity in diaries of the Occupation through cognitive approaches.

    I am also interested in autofiction, particularly the works of Québécois writer Marie-Sissi Labrèche.
