I have experience teaching all levels of French, French and Francophone literatures and cinemas, and gender studies at the college level.
My research focuses on gender issues in Haitian and Algerian literatures and cinemas and in French cinema. Recent projects include an article on masculinities in Algeria and conference presentations on foreign language teaching techniques at the annual American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages Conference (ACTFL).
I have published articles on women in Lebanese Francophone literature; masculinity in French colonial cinema; and the intersections of masculinity, religion and war in Algeria. My most recent article, “Masculinities, Money, and Mosques in Algeria’s Civil War,” was published online in March 2019 by the Peace Review: A Journal of Social Justice.
