Associate Professor of French, Emeritus, December 2014

Born in Champagne, France, I studied philosophy at the University of Nancy [Master Degree in Philosophy] and taught Philosophy in several lycées in France from 1962-1976, and French and Philosophy in Morocco from 1968 to 1970. From 1976 to 1982, after having gotten a master degree in career and psychology advising, I worked as a "conseiller d'orientation scolaire et professionnel" [career advisor], in various locations in France, and then became director of the CIO of Savigny-sur-Orge, south of Paris. My academic career took me to the United States where I obtained a Ph.D. in French literature in 1986 from Indiana University, specializing in Nineteenth and Seventeen century French, Orientalist and spiritual Literature.
