  • Associate Dean for the Arts & Humanities

I specialize in twentieth-century literature, culture, and history, with a comparative emphasis upon Anglo-American and French modernism.  I teach core courses in these areas, as well as in literary and feminist theory and theories of cosmopolitanism.  My current book project considers how expatriate writers responded to the Vichy regime in France.

As an administrator, I have been chair of the Presidential Steering Committee for Moving Dartmouth Forward (, and, as of July 1, 2015, will be the Associate Dean of Arts & Humanities at Dartmouth.
