Education

  • Ph.D. Romance Philology (Univ. of California, Berkeley)
  • M.A. French (San Francisco State University)
  • B.A. French (Univ. of California, Berkeley)

As a linguist and medievalist, trained in comparative Romance philology (both medieval language and literature), I had responsibility from 1991 to 2013 for graduate courses in history of the French language and French stylistics. I also taught Old French literature (including readings in Old Provençal troubadour poetry), translation, and advanced French grammar, as well as third-year courses in French phonetics, grammar review, composition, and conversation. Other teaching duties included a seminar on research methods (LLEA 630) and a course in medieval Welsh language and literature (LLEA 682, Masterpieces of Medieval Welsh Literature). I offered a wide variety of topics as directed readings: modern and medieval French epic, literature, and language; two semesters of continued readings in Medieval Welsh literature; introductory Rumanian; dialectology of Corsican; and comparative Romance dialectology and grammar.
