I have taught courses on contemporary literary theory, Paris, travel literature, the 18th-Century novel, early modern French theater, and Caribbean women writers, as well as introductory French language courses. My book Sexual Antipodes: Enlightenment Globalization and the Placing of Sex (2003) addressed the discursive relationship between French and British eighteenth-century sexual and national identity within a global framework. My current research focuses on late eighteenth-century women writers and on representations of and technologies for the management of identity in modernity. I currently serve in the department as the graduate French advisor.
