Mouflard Presents Research at Penn State
Assistant Professor of French Claire Mouflard recently presented the research for her upcoming manuscript titled The “Black-Blanc-Beur” Utopia: Publishing Practices and Identity Formation in Metropolitan French Women Writing (1998-2005) at Penn State University as part of the French and Francophone Studies Graduate Organization's lecture series.
During her visit, she also gave a presentation on the Metropolitan French publishing industry in an upper-level class titled "La France Contemporaine." Mouflard's presentation, titled "Publication en métropole: quels enjeux identitaires pour les écrivains dits 'francophones'?" invited students to reflect on the editing and marketing practices of major Parisian publishing houses in the case of non-white authors writing in French.
