I’m a native of northern France, and I love teaching my language to students because I love to see them go from hesitant to talkative as they gain confidence.
I provide campus and community-wide direction and supervision for major programs and activities in the areas of civic engagement and leadership. I coordinate community partnerships, support faculty members working on community-based pedagogy, and oversee major programs. I also work on Title IX complaint resolution for students, and division-wide learning outcome assessments.
I am a literary scholar whose study of recent American fiction led him to the digital world, where contemporary artists and writers are on the vanguard of experimental literature. My teaching and research has evolved to include software studies, video games, and other forms of algorithmic culture. I am the current director of the Digital Studies program.
I provide vision and leadership to capture, acquire, and share college history. I create and implement the college records management program. I acquire manuscripts and books for Archives and Special Collections and provide research assistance and instruction using the resources in the department.
My research and teaching explore questions around gender, culture, and history in modern Europe and especially France from the late eighteenth century through the mid-twentieth century.
