Cheryl Morgan, associate professor of French, delivered a paper on March 22 for a Journée d’études at the Universté Michel de Montaigne Bordeaux 3 in Bordeaux, France. Morgan’s paper, “'Je suis une cocotte légale’:  mariage, argent, et fiction chez Marie Bonaparte-Wyse,” examined the prominent place of wealth, work and corruption in the life and fiction of this flamboyant cousin of emperor Napoleon III.

The day-long conference, “French women writers and money,” aimed to explore the under-examined question of 19th-century French women writers and money both in their lives and their work.
