Modern Languages Prof. Presented at Conference
Gina Marie Breen, visiting assistant professor of Francophone studies, presented at the Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association Conference Oct 12 to 14 in Spokane, Washington.
Her paper, titled "Writing Conflict Through Conflicting Voices in Assia Djebar’s Le Blanc de l’Algérie and Ces voix qui m’assiègent," was part of a “Women in French” special session panel on embodying conflict.
Her research examines how Djebar's work focuses on women and the effects of war. She analyses Djebar's use of language, including its plurality, limitations, and functions within the context of French-Algerian conflict, which expands upon her recently accepted article, titled "Resurrecting Mythopoetic Representations of French Algeria,” which will be published in the Spring 2018 by Dalhousie University's Department of French Studies.
