Interdisciplinary, global, transhistoric, and transdisciplinary thinking define our department. Our community includes 12 graduate faculty, 9 general faculty and lecturers, and around 20 funded graduate students. Collectively we reflect a diversity of voices. We offer small seminars in French spanning geographically and historically from the Francophone Global South (North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean, Indian Ocean) to French-speaking Europe, from Medieval through Contemporary France. Department members participate in the Institute of the Humanities and Global Cultures; the Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities; Caribbean Studies; Medieval Studies; Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies; and European Studies. We also work across several departments of the College of Art and Sciences as well as with institutions abroad, in particular the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris, l’École Normale Supérieure (Ulm), and Université de Lyon 2.
