Nicole Aas-Rouxparis, professor of French:
In July, Aas-Rouxparis and Krista Sarin CAS ‘08 co-presented a paper titled “Identity, Commitment or Nomadism in Assia Djebar’s La Disparition de la langue française” at the International Congress of Francophone Studies held in Limoges, France.
Their paper topic was based on the theme from Aas-Rouxparis’ French 450 spring 2008 seminar, “Identity and Commitment in French/Francophone Literature,” and analyzed Algerian author Assia Djebar’s 2004 novel, “La Disparition de la langue francaise.”
Sarin will spend the next year in Lille, France as a Language Assistant before moving on to graduate school.
