A year of accomplishments

Dear Friends of RLL:
It has been a year of very hard work here at RLL. Let
me try to impress you with some numbers. As you will
see under the "Graduate Student News" section of this
Newsletter, over the past year we have awarded six
Ph.D.'s meaning that at least three of our faculty
members read and approved their dissertations -
advanced seven students to Ph.D. candidacy meaning
that they passed Ph.D. Qualifying Examinations prepared
and graded by at least three RLL faculty and awarded
15 M.A. degrees, all of which involve comprehensive
examinations and most of which entail M.A. theses as
well. At the undergraduate level, we have graduated
close to 40 majors in Spanish and 15 in French, and
awarded even greater numbers of minors in Spanish,
French, Italian and Portuguese. All of this is just the tip of
the iceberg, of course, since most of the students we
serve are at the first- to third-year levels. In all, RLL is
responsible for teaching Romance Languages to
approximately 6400 students per academic year!
Not only do we do a lot of work, we do it well. I am
convinced that our students receive instruction and
mentoring that is equal in quality to that received by
students at America's most renowned universities. RLL
majors are certainly more challenging than the major I
completed more than 30 years ago, and I know that our
graduate students receive much more personal attention
than I received when I was in graduate school. We are

very proud of our students and do everything we can
to help insure their success after leaving our
department.
Of course we could do more if we had more
resources. This year we are most acutely aware of
the insufficiency of the scholarships we are able to
offer our students, both graduate and undergraduate,
aimed at helping them spend time abroad where they
can sharpen their language skills and get first-hand
experience of the cultures they study here. This is an
incredibly enriching
experience which is not
often available to students : ..
of modest means. At the
end of this newsletter you
will find descriptions of
several of the fund-raising
initiatives that we are
promoting, as well as a Dauer Hall, home of RLL
coupon to send in with
your support of the initiative of your choice.
I would like to reiterate as well our desire to keep up
with the lives of our alumni through the medium of this
Newsletter. We would love to hear from you, and to
receive news of your career, your families, and your
lives. You can write to us at the return address, or use
our e-mail address: rll@rll.ufl.edu.
In this spirit, this year we are featuring a vignette from
the current research being carried out by one of our
favorite alumnae, Dr. Eugena Poulin, RSM, who
received her Ph.D. in French literature from UF in
1986. After leaving Florida, Eugena taught at Salve
Regina University, in Newport, RI, where she served
five years as chairperson of the Modem Languages
Department. She is now in semi-retirement, but
continues to research topics close to her heart. Her
most recent work was a series of four articles on
seventeenth century women in New France which
appeared in the Genealogical Journal, Je Me Souviens.
Notably, Eugena was selected as Franco-American of
the Year by the Rhode Island Heritage Commission in
1987.

Brad Epps, Professor of Romance
Languages and Literatures and
Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies
at Harvard University, presented a talk
entitled "Melodrama, Pornography, and
Abstraction in Pedro Almod6var's
'Talk to Her'" on March 18, 2005.
Professor Epps has published nearly
sixty articles on modem literature,
film, art, and architecture from Spain,
Latin America, Catalonia, and France,
and is the author of Significant
Violence: Oppression andResistance in
the Narratives of Juan Goytisolo
(Oxford UP). He is currently preparing
two books: "Daring to Write", on gay
and lesbian issues in Latin America,
Spain, and Latino cultures in the United
States, and "Barcelona and Beyond",
on modem Catalan culture.

Laura Freixas, a well-known Spanish
writer, journalist, and critic, gave a
lecture to a large and appreciative
audience in November 2004. Both her
lively delivery and her topic-
"Literatura y mujeres en Espafia:
historic de un falso boom"- made the
occasion memorable. Her visit to UF,
which included a luncheon with the
Casal Catala (the Catalan House of
Florida) was later described in one of
her weekly columns in La Vanguardia,
the largest circulation newspaper in
Barcelona. Freixas is the author of
creative fiction (El asesino en la
muieca, 1988; Ultimo domingo en
Londres 1997; Entre amigas, 1998;
Cuentos a los cuarenta, 2001), critical
essays (Literatura y mujer, 2000) and
several popular anthologies, including
Madres e hijas (1996), now in its
twentieth reprinting.

continued in 2004 under the direction
of Gillian Lord and Andrew Lynch. We

The French Woman of Canada
by Eugena Poulin, RSM, PhD
The French impact on the North American continent was experienced early.
With the founding of Quebec by Samuel de Champlain in 1608, the French
embarked on a colonial venture. Women were in a minority in the first fifty
years of the settlement. Because the King, Louis XIV, was eager to increase
the population of New France in order to ensure France's supremacy in the
New World, he sponsored the immigration of large groups of women. He
provided transportation and dowries for young women who were identified as
'Les Filles du roi,' the daughters of the King. The goal was to equalize the male
dominated population and provide wives and mothers to the fledgling
settlement. During the period between 1663-1673 nearly a thousand young
marriageable girls and women made their home in New France. They were
more than wives and mothers, they immediately became a vital segment of
society.
'These Amazons' is the description in the Jesuits Relation, a journal maintained
by the missionaries, of the French religious women who colonized New
France. The first to arrive were Marie Guenet, Anne Le Cointre, and Marie
Forestier. They founded a hospital, l'H6tel Dieu, in Quebec in 1639. That
same year Marie Guyart, Marie de la Torche, Marie Ste Croix, and a lay
woman, Madame de La Peltrie, opened the first school. In Montreal
Marguerite Bourgeoys and four other women opened the first female trade
school in North America in 1658. Not all the women were involved with
hospitals and schools. Although not formally belonging to any religious order,
Jeanne Le Ber, a recluse, was considered a mystic.
One must not forget the wives and mothers who raised enormous families and
labored in the fields with their husbands. They also deserved the accolade
penned by the Jesuits for their courage and fortitude. During the winter
months, women managed the family business while their husbands made long
treks into the wilderness to trap food and furs. In general, seventeenth
century men in New France depended on women as partners. One such
instance of this interdependence was Jacques Largillier, who, during his
absences from the colony, entrusted his financial affairs to two female
relatives, his sister, Catherine Largillier, and a cousin, Marie Paget.
Among the many seventeenth century French women who actively
participated in the colonial economy was Agathe Saint Pere, a wife and mother
of eight children, who began a textile manufacturing enterprise, and
experimented with roots and berries to produce a variety of colored fabrics.
Also in the economic domain, Eleanor de Grand-Maison, a four-time widow,
could be considered a real estate magnate, completing more than sixty
transactions.
Life was tumultuous in seventeenth century New France; the presence of the
war-like Indians made violence a common occurrence. A remarkable young
woman, fourteen-year-old Madeleine de Vercheres, assumed the role of a
military leader in 1692. To protect her small settlement of Vercheres from
marauding Iroquois she organized a few women and her two younger
brothers, one of whom was only eight years old, to guard the ramparts of the
village. She succeeded in keeping the attacking enemy at bay for three days
until male reinforcements arrived. Seventeenth-century women generally had
little influence. In most parts of the world, including France, midwives were
frequently at odds with the medical establishment. The seventeenth-century

men of science looked with disdain
upon the profession and its
practitioners, even though they
themselves knew very little about
conception and the development of
the fetus. In New France, however,
there was cooperation between
medical men and midwives. The
doctors of Quebec did not hesitate
to use the services of the midwives
for their own wives. Among several
documented cases was the Neuville
surgeon, Frangois Gregoire, whose
wife, Marie Lidnard, was attended
by the midwife of the area.The
women of New France probably
had more influence on the success
of this French colony than other
colonial European women of that
period. The title of Louis- Guy
Lemieux's article "The Great Man of
Canada Was a Woman -- a literary
portrait of Marie Guyart" seems
fitting. The French women who
settled New France may even have
surpassed their male counterparts in
their courage, ingenuity and
influence. The early description of
'these Amazons' is still deemed
appropriate.

have enjoyed talks by Ben
Hebblethwaite Dr. Efrain Barradas,
Roger McManus, Dr. Mary Watt, and
Dr. Elizabeth Lowe. Spring 2005's
lineup looks to be as promising and
interesting as these and we all look
forward to the upcoming talks.

Sigma Delta Pi (Hispanic Honor
Society) is open to outstanding
students of the Spanish language and
Hispanic literature. We are pleased to

The nascent Center for Medieval
and Early Modern Studies, of which
Mary Watt is co-director, launched its
monthly Stammtisch Series. On the
first Monday of every month a
graduate student or MEMS faculty
gives a talk followed by a roundtable
discussion. Also, the Center received
generous funding from the City of
Gainesville and the FFRI for its annual
spring Colloquium. This year's
program, entitled "Camevale Media-
evale: 'Oyez, Oyez, Oyez' Missives
and Messages: Media in the Middle
Ages", took place on March 14, 15, 16
at the Thomas Center and the
University of Florida.

On October 28-29, 2004, our
Department (in conjunction with The
Center for Latin American Studies, The
College of Education, The International
Center, The College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences, and the Office of the
Provost) hosted a lecture series and a
workshop entitled: "Indigenous
Knowledge, Education and
Development in the Americas:
Academic Responses to Indigenous
Activism and Cultural Revival in
Colombia, Honduras, Mexico, and
Florida." The event gathered eight
intellectuals from four countries and
was organized by Alvaro Felix Bolafios
(Associate Professor, RLL) and Allan
Bums (Associate Dean for Faculty
Affairs and Professor of
Anthropology). This initiative
responded to the increase in the
cultural and political visibility of
indigenous communities in Latin
America and the U.S. It is our hope to
establish the basis of an international


association for the further discussion
of indigenous issues.

The Foreign Languages Across the
Curriculum (FLAC) program at UF,
directed by Dr. Greg Moreland, enters
its ninth year, offering an extensive
array of language enhancement
sections in Spanish, French, Italian and
Portuguese. Fall 2004 featured several
"tried and true" courses: France and
the European Union, Brazilian Music,
Contemporary Latin American Politics,
Public Relations in the Spanish-
Speaking World, and Latin American
Business Environment. Spring 2005
included sections on Business and
Economics in Latin America, Spain and
the European Union, Latin American
Music, and Business Portuguese, as
well as two new additions to the line-
up: Business and Culture of Sports in
the Spanish-Speaking World and
Business and Culture in the
Francophone World.

Ms. Sherrie Nunn taught and assisted.
The programs offer students the
opportunity to live and study in Rome
and also to visit Florence, Pompeii and
other cities. The 2005 programs are
fully subscribed. Plans are under way
to start a semester program in Rome
beginning in the near future.

Last summer, a number
of graduate students,
including Abdou Yaro,
Cyrille Guillo, Sandrine
Savona, and Sophie
Ganachaud taught at the
Paris Research
Center. Also, Hongli
Fan served as Professor
Antes' teaching assistant in the UF in
Provence Program (Avignon).

Drs. Greg Moreland and Efrain
Barradas led the contingent of students
who participated in the UF in
Guanajuato program during Summer
A 2004. The relatively small size of


the group allowed for quick bonding
and a great deal of Spanish-language
practice. The 17 students connected
quite well with Mexican culture and
thoroughly enjoyed excursions to
various parts of the country. We
expect much the same for UF in
Guanajuato 2005, which will be
directed by Drs. Moreland and Clara
Sotelo.

During Summer A of 2004, Susana
Braylan and Maria Guerrero took 25
students to Santander, Spain. This
was the third year of the program and,


despite the political problems and the
war in Iraq, they had an enjoyable trip
filled with very positive experiences.
The students stayed with families and
studied in this beautiful northern city,
surrounded by the most wonderful
beaches and mountains. The weather
helped greatly since it rained only a
few times and the students were able
to enjoy many warm and sunny days.
During their seven-week stay, they
visited magnificent museums, such as
El Museo del Prado, and Reina Sofia in
Madrid, and the Guggenheim Museum,
in Bilbao. They trekked the Picos de
Europa mountains, learned about the
Altamira Caves and the architecture of
the great Gaudi. They traveled to El
Escorial, Toledo, and San Sebastian.
The Santander group was wonderful;
they followed rules, were very polite
and friendly toward their host families,
and enjoyed each other, developing
long-lasting friendships among them.
Kathy Navajas will be traveling to
Santander as the director in the
summer of 2005. Ericka Parra has
been elected to go as a TA, and they
have recruited 26 students to date.


The department has long needed a
semester-long study abroad program in
a Spanish-speaking country, and at last
we are close to starting one: UF in
Barcelona will debut in Spring 2006.
The advantages of having our own
program are many, but principally it is
a means to guarantee that our students
will be able to take courses abroad that
complement rather than duplicate our
curriculum. Students on the program
will take 12-15 credit hours, most at
the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, a new
public university in Barcelona with an
excellent reputation. They may also
take one advanced Spanish literature

course from the UF professor who
will be the resident director of the
program (for Spring 2006 it will be
Geraldine Nichols). Barcelona,
Spain's second largest city, was
chosen for the vibrancy of its cultural
and intellectual life, its mild climate
(we are Floridians, after all!), and
because so many students are eager to
spend time there.

dealing with the 1909
Spanish-Moroccan war
from a female writer's
perspective at the 2004
MLA Conference in Philadelphia in

in July. She contributed a chapter on the
representations of the Black African
colonial subject in 20th-century Spanish
theater and pop culture in the book, La
reconstrucci6n de la memorial, edited by
M'bare N'gom, which was published by
the University of Alcala de Henares last
December. Last Fall, she contributed a
chapter on the female writers of the early
20th century in a book edited by Susana
Carvalho, currently in press, and an
article on the playwright Benavente for a
forthcoming book on Nobel-winning
writers. Last Summer, she received a
travel grant from CES (UF Center of
European Studies) and two grants for
curriculum development from CES and
the UF International Center.

RLL Newsletter [page 8]


Undergraduate French
Dr. Bernadette Cdsar-Lee, who is
serving this year as French
Undergraduate Coordinator, reports the
following: (1) Enrollment of majors in
French is stable with an increase of
minors since 2003 and increased
enrollment in French courses overall
this year thanks to active recruitment
on the part of all faculty at various
events. (2) The offering of new
advanced Summer courses at UF was
successfully received with David
Billa's FRE 3410 "Advanced French
Conversation" and Heloise Seailles's
FRE 3564 "Contemporary Culture"
courses. (3) Many of our former
majors are teaching in France and/or
pursuing their academic career in
France: Margot Bettencourt, Christina
Higgins, Dana Connors, Jaime O'Dell,
Kalin Linsberg, Rachel Gora... Several
others are on their way: Joseph Swan,
Jaime Perdomo, Miguel Bunker, Ralph
Gedeon, among others. (4) Students
for the first time were able to take
French courses during spring break at
the Paris Research Center, and during
the summer with the Avignon program
(see PRC report/Avignon report). (5)
The French Honors Society
(moderated by Daniele Buchler) saw


an increase in membership. (6)
Starting this semester, the French Club
now meets every Tuesday at 7:00 pm,
with faculty advisers (Nathalie Ciesco
and Annie Trdgouet) alternating
meeting attendance. Officers include:
Jennifer Basset, Brooke Ballou,
Souleymane Faye, Sandy-Mehu
Garcon, Karina Fernandez, Christopher
Scoones, and Elissa Smith. Activities
include: film screenings, conversation
and games -on and off campus, and
a picnic at Lake Wauburg on March 20
for the Jour de la Francophonie.

Portuguese
The Portuguese section welcomed a
new teaching assistant, Luciana
Monteiro, who is pursuing a
concentration in Brazilian Studies in
Latin American Studies. Professors
Ginway and Perrone prepared new
courses for the diversifying major;
these included an updated version of
the popular-music enhancement
section, an upper-division class on
Brazilian science fiction, separate
offerings for Luso-Brazilian Culture
and Civilization, and a new rotating
topic on cultural dimensions of
Portuguese globalism (funded by the
Center for European Studies and
cross-listed with Women's Studies). In
conjunction with this course, the
Department co-sponsored a visit and
lecture by Prof Anna Klobucka of the
University of Massachusetts
Dartmouth. Once again an


undergraduate student will be awarded
travel money from the Alfred Hower
memorial fund to attend the summer
2005 study-abroad program in Rio de
Janeiro, now in its 24th year. Summer
2004 was another busy and successful
year for the Copacabana program. At
UF, the Brazilian Portuguese Club has
met regularly this academic year under
the supervision of adjunct Mary
Risner, who also taught an
enhancement section of Business
Portuguese.

Undergraduate Spanish

Dr. Greg Moreland, Undergraduate
Coordinator of Spanish, reports that
enrollment in Spanish courses
continues to rise. The number of
majors is holding steady in the
neighborhood of 160, while the
number of minors is rapidly increasing,
from 120 in Fall 2003 to 163 in Fall
2004. Accordingly, enrollment in 3rd
and 4th-year courses has grown as
well, from 614 in Fall 2003 to 696 in
Fall 2004. We continue to be hard-
pressed to serve such a large cohort of
students.

Graduate Spanish

Shifra Armon, Graduate Coordinator
for Spanish, reports that the Graduate
Program in Spanish admitted four
Ph.D. candidates and eight M.A.
candidates in Fall 04. Among the

We have established a memorial fund in honor of Professor J. Wayne Conner, the founding chair (1962-1980) of the
Department of Romance Languages & Literatures, who passed away on December 10, 2000. We most gratefully
acknowledge the fund's promising start thanks to a generous contribution of $40,000 by Mrs. Aileen Conner. The
purpose of this fund is to provide initially a $1,000 J. Wayne Conner Fellowship as a one-year supplemental grant to an
incoming French graduate student selected by the faculty of the French section. Each year, a new French graduate
student shall be the recipient of this fellowship. We appeal to our colleagues, alumni and alumnae, especially those who
studied and worked with Dr. Conner, to contribute to this fund, to help us maintain it and gradually allow us to increase
the number of recipients who, eventually, may include undergraduate students. To make a contribution, please detach
the stub at the end of this newsletter and mail it in with your check. Please make your check payable to "The University
of Florida Foundation" and note "J.Wayne Conner Memorial Fund #8517" on the left hand bottom of your check.

Program news, cont'd.
M.A.'s, Violeta Lorenzo is our first 4-1
student, which means that she
managed to complete her first four
graduate courses in Spanish while she
was still an undergraduate at UF. We
are delighted that Violeta accepted the
challenge of pioneering this ambitious
new track. According to Dr. Armon,
Spanish graduate student
representatives Alejandro Quin and
Melanie D'Amico have done a great
job this year. They organized a series
of informal meetings with Dr. Armon
in the Fall to clear up questions about
procedures. Dr. Armon also reports
that we celebrated our first annual
Spanish graduate student brunch in
January, at which 35 student and
faculty showed up for a relaxing social
afternoon at her home in Alachua. A
student-run conference is in the works
as well.

Bilingual Program

Susana Braylan, Coordinator of RLL's
Bilingual Program, reports that the
academic year 2004-2005 has been
very rewarding and that she is looking
forward to the challenges of a new
year. She reports: "The Bilingual
Program is growing nicely. It is a
pleasure to see Bilingual students
continuing their studies and majoring in
Spanish. It is also rewarding to hear
from them once they have left. We
have a wonderful Hispanic community
at UF that needs to be catered to and
pampered so that its members will
realize how important it is to maintain
their heritage. I feel these classes
honor their need to grow as Hispanics
and to feel proud of their roots."

France-Florida
Research Institute

Greetings from the FFRI, from the
Director, Carol Murphy.
The France-Florida Research Institute

existence, during which it has
sponsored over 70 events, including 8


short-term visiting professorships, a
film festival, the Jacques-Henri
Lartigue exhibit at the Ham Museum of
Art, and numerous lectures,
conferences, and symposia. A highlight
of the 2004-2005 calendar was the
22nd Annual 20th and 21st Century
International French and Francophone
Studies Colloquium, which was held at
the University of Florida Hilton Hotel
and Conference Center, March 31-
April 2, 2005. Over 200 participants
from universities in the U.S., the
United Kingdom, France, Italy,
Sweden, Australia, and Japan gathered
to present papers on the conference
theme, "Verbal, Visual, Virtual: New
Canons for the 21st Century." Keynote
speakers included Professor Etienne
Balibar, of the Universit6 de Paris X
and UC-Irvine, who spoke on
"Constructions et deconstructions de
l'universel," and Pierre Alferi, poet,
philosopher and filmmaker, who
addressed "Le Sens du Trait." Also
present for special sessions on their
works were the novelist Marie Nimier,
2004 Prix M6dicis laureate for her
novel La Reine du Silence, and Fred
Forest, web artist and theoretician.
Of the numerous events sponsored by
the FFRI, it is important to mention the
enormous success of the exhibit
"Jacques-Henri Lartigue: ABoy, A
Camera, An Era" (March-July 2004),
co-curated by Dr. John Cech and
Kerry Oliver-Smith. The exhibit a
joyous look at Lartigue's boyhood
photography created at the Ham is
now at the Louisiana Art and Science
Center in Baton Rouge, and will travel
to the Elvehjem Museum of Art at the
University of Wisconsin. Two visiting
FFRI professors came to UF in 2004.
Professor Maati Monjib, Universit6 de


Meknes, Morocco, taught a course on
African history last spring, with the
cooperation of the Department of
History and the Center for African
Studies under the direction of Dr. Leo
Villal6n. Dr. Pierre Jacob of the Institut
Nicod and the EHESS in Paris,
delivered lectures in Philosophy and
Linguistics and at the McKnight Brain
Institute. Novelist Marie Nimier and
international artist Herv6 Di Rosa were
guests of the FFRI in November for a
series of lectures and seminars on their
individual and joint works, and in
December, Thierry Z6phir, curator of
southeast Asian art at the Mus6e
Guimet in Paris, delivered a slide
lecture on the temples of Cambodia. In
Spring 2005, the FFRI co-sponsored
three events in conjunction with the
Medieval and Early Modem Studies
Center, co-directed by Assistant
Professor of Italian Mary Watt, and the
Department of English, including a
seminar, a film conference, and a
lecture and exhibit at the Thomas
Center on the Bayeux Tapestry.
In June 2004, Carol Murphy was
invited to the second annual Seminar
on Franco-American cooperation in
Paris, France, by French Ambassador
Jean-David Levitte. Accompanying her
were CLAS Associate Dean for
Research Lou Guillette and Zoology
Professor Craig Osenberg, who each
presented proposals to establish new
partnerships between UF and French
universities. UF is engaged in two
grant proposals for funding from the
French-American Fund in Academic
Partnerships, one in Economics with
the Universit6 de Toulouse 1, and the
other in Coral Reef Preservation with
the Ecole pratique des Hautes Etudes
and its lab, CRIOBE, in Moorea,
French Polynesia.


We are constantly striving to expand and improve our
graduate and undergraduate courses. We can continue
to offer the excellent programs that we do only with
your help. To donate, please see the last page of this

Languages and Literatures in 1999.
The news of Danielle's passing evoked
some moving messages from her
former faculty members. Dr. George
Diller writes: "Danielle had a most

uncommon gift with texts. Her
readings oral and written of prose
and poetry were sensitive and
illuminating for students and professor
alike. In the courses she took with me,
and in long individual literary
discussions with her, I considered her
as a full equal for her literary skills.
Had circumstances permitted her to
take up a career at the university level,
I am sure that she would have rapidly
gained international distinction. Her
passing marks a sad moment." Dr.
Bernadette Cailler adds: "I remember
several conversations I had with
Danielle over the years. I was present

at her PhD defense. What an
impressive intellectual she was! Few
people I know understand poetic
language the way she did. I also
remember congratulating her on her
beautiful French. The power of her
mind, the precision of her language
and reasoning, the strength of her
convictions were precious gifts to all
of us. She will be remembered with
respect and affection."

Martha Castafieda has completed her
Ph.D. in Second-Language Acquisition
and Instructional Technology at the
University of South Florida, and has
also just accepted a tenure-track
position at DePaul University in
Chicago.

Juan G6mez Canseco reports that,
after he graduated from RLL in 2000
with an M.A. in Spanish, he was hired
as an assistant professor of Spanish by
Santa Fe Community College
(Gainesville, FL) where he earned
tenure in 2004. At SFCC, he teaches
mostly beginning Spanish for students
who need to fulfill their foreign
language requirement, but this
semester he has added a new course,
"Survival Spanish for Health Care
Professionals", in an effort to better
serve the needs of our student
community. He sends special greetings
to Dr. Pharies, his M.A. thesis director,
and to Dr. Joaquim Camps, from
whom he received excellent
professional training.

In July 2004, Joe Johnson (Ph.D.
French, 1999) accepted a tenure-track
position as Assistant Professor of


Foreign Languages (French &
Spanish) at Clayton College & State
University in southern Atlanta, after
having spent four years at Georgia
Southwestern State University in
Americus, GA. Although he had just
been promoted to Associate Professor
at GSW, Joe believed that the position
at Clayton State had a lot more
potential in almost every respect. His
recent publications include a half-
dozen translations of French graphic
novels, and he is credited as the editor
of The Adapted Victor Hugo (New
York: NBM Publishing, 2004), a
graphics rendering of fifteen poems by
Hugo. Joe is giving talks at the spring

a textbook for advanced college-level
Spanish classes, entitled En otras
palabras: perfeccionamiento del
espaiol por medio de la traduccion
(Georgetown University Press, 2003).

Our former Ph.D. student, Pamela F.
Paine, has been promoted to Associate
Professor of French with tenure at
