Languages & Literatures
I have taught at DU for 38 years. I have a PhD from Princeton University. I have published four books, 30 articles and over two hundred book reviews on French and Francophone literature including literature from Quebec and the Caribbean. Four of those articles are in the Studies of Voltaire and the Eighteenth Century series published by the Voltaire Foundation at Oxford University. I was the President of the Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association from 1980-1983 and I was the Managing Editor of the French Review, the journal of the American Association of Teachers of French, from 1998-2001. I received an honorary knighthood from the French Government (the "Palmes Academiques") in 1992, and the same year received DU's University Teacher/Scholar of the year award. In addition to French, I know Italian, Spanish and German and can read Latin and Greek.
