Languages & Literatures
I received my PhD from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and have been at DU since
1982. My research interest is medieval French literature; I have published two books
on medieval poetry and am currently working on fourteenth-century urban drama. I love
to teach and enjoy being the undergraduate advisor for the French section. I believe
that studying language, culture and literature can make you a better citizen of the
world and can even make you a better person. A complete curriculum vitae can be found
on the University of Denver Portfolio pages.
