Title: "Accidental Tourists in the Francophone World: Reflections on Travel in Contemporary Narratives of Immigration.”

Bio: Jennifer Howell is an Associate Professor of French at Illinois State in the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures. Her first book, The Algerian War in French-Language Comics: Postcolonial Memory, History, and Subjectivity (2015), explores the decolonization of Algeria as a turning point in world history and argues that the Algerian war of national liberation constitutes an inescapable reference for today’s global citizen. Her teaching and research interests include Contemporary French & Francophone Literatures, Francophone Literatures of the African and Asian Diasporas, The Beur Novel & Bande Dessinée, and Memory & History in Postcolonial Literatures.
