Broadly speaking, I’m interested in the Early Modern period in France. My scholarship has been focused on seventeenth-century writers such as Scudery and Boileau, as well as the eighteenth-century memorialist Saint-Simon. I’m currently pursuing a project on the notion of “enjouement” in the seventeenth- and eighteenth-century novel, with chapters on D’Urfe, Scudery, Villedieu, Marivaux, Laclos, and Stael. Since I regularly teach all levels of French language and literature at Grinnell College, I’m also interested in language pedagogy and the teaching of writing.
