- Senior Research Paper (in French): Avant-Garde Theory in Practice: Antonin Artaud's Théâtre de la Cruaté in the Plays of Eugene Ionesco:
I study modern France, specifically post-World War II cultural and gender history of France and Algeria. I am interested in the political and cultural ramifications of France's war in Algeria and the process of decolonization, especially as it involved and/or affected women/women's movements. Furthermore, my research focuses on the friction between France's claims to a universalist republican legacy and its difficulty squaring away gender, racial, and cultural difference.
