Dr. Gina Breen, Visiting Assistant Professor of Francophone Studies, recently presented new research at the 2019 National Women's Studies Association in San Francisco. Her talk "Algerian Women Fighting for Peace and Independence," which was part of the Feminist Film and Literature of the Global South Panel, discussed how women's representations evolved from the colonial to postcolonial periods by analysing Gillo Pontecorvo's film La Bataille d'Alger, Assia Djebar's autofiction Le Blanc de l'AlgĂ©rie and Zohra Drif's memoir Inside the Battle of Algiers.
