Research in the Department of French
Our research culture is vibrant, innovative and unique!
The diverse areas of specialization of faculty members allow for the exploration of continuities and differences across time and space, and the variety of theoretical frameworks used by members in their research also enriches diversity of perspective. From the many content areas of our research (Linguistics and Applied Linguistics, French, Québécois and Francophone literature and culture, Literature from the Middle Ages to the 21st century...) several intersections among our work emerge:
- a focus on women (Cazes, Carlin, Vautier)
- linguistics as a tool for reading culture (Hérique, Caws, Niang, Léger)
- the notion of alterity (Vautier, Niang, Hsieh, Fromet de Rosnay)
- digital humanities (Fromet de Rosnay, Caws, Carlin)
- editorial mediations and practice (Lapprand, Cazes, Hérique)
- religion and spirituality (Vautier, Cazes, Carlin)
- representations of identity (Vautier)
- film studies (Niang, Fromet de Rosnay)
Dr. Marc Lapprand received the UVic Faculty of Humanities Research Excellence Award in 2010.
