French faculty member Isabel Roche has received a spring 2010 fellowship to pursue her work on "The Literary Animal in 19th-Century France" at Williams College's Oakley Center for the Humanities and Social Sciences.
The Oakley Center provides support and workspace for faculty research and development, and facilitates intellectual exchange and collaboration among resident and student fellows whose research and teaching cross or elude disciplinary boundaries.
Roche, a scholar of French literature, focuses her research on the 19th-century French novel and French Romanticism. She is the author of Character and Meaning in the Novels of Victor Hugo and has published articles in The French Review, French Forum, and Contemporary Literary Criticism Yearbook.
