My background is in Comparative Literature (Ph.D. Yale University, 1991). I teach language courses ("comprehension orale"), translation ("theme" - French to English), and upper level courses in the history of ideas (on Democracy, Empire, Fascism), rhetoric ("Understanding Arguments"; "Controlling the Narrative"), and cinema ("History of France through Film").

As service, I have for many years interviewed and advised Lyon 3 students who wish to study English abroad or teach French abroad.

I direct Master theses at the rate of roughly 3 per year and serve on the jury of several Master theses in LEA, LCE, and LLCER each year.

I have published three books on "Ralph Waldo Emerson: une introduction" (2006, in French), "Tocqueville and Democracy in the Internet Age" (Open Humanities Press, 2014), and "Fascism, Vulnerability, and the Escape from Freedom: Readings to Repair Democracy" (Punctum Books, 2022).

I have translated a dozen books - nonfiction and two novels - from French to English, as well as many scholarly articles.
