I received my PhD in French Studies from Western University in 2009 and my MA in French from the same institution in 2004.
Prior to joining Laurier, I was a lecturer in the Department of French Studies at Western University, and I also worked as a research assistant for Alain Goldschläger (awarded the Order of Academic Palms, 2013), director of The Holocaust Literature Research Institute at Western University.
The main focus of my research is looking into what makes “migrant writing” (écriture migrante) a genre in itself, with its own specific literary features, and asserting that it is not a mere literary trend associated with the author’s immigration circumstances. My current research also includes exploring the concepts of “américanité” and “amérilatinité” in Canadian literature.
