Department of French & Italian at Emory
New Faculty Appointments

The Department welcomes two new faculty members in September: Vincent Bruyère and Subha Xavier will join the French faculty as assistant professors.

Vincent Bruyère received his Ph.D. from the University of Warwick in England. His interest in research ethics and methodologies, literary culture, and medical humanities converges around a challenge whose terms he borrows from The Predicament of Culture when James Clifford acknowledges that: “It is easier to register the loss of traditional orders of difference than to perceive the emergence of new ones.” After a first book on the notion of francophone difference in literary studies (Presses Universitaires de Rennes, 2012), his current project deals with narratives of survivability and the mapping of competing demands for survival that characterize the present.

Subha Xavier joins the Emory faculty from the University of Miami. She has a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and specializes in global French literature from Quebec, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean with a special interest in immigrant and diaspora studies. She is currently completing a book entitled The Migrant Text: Theory and Practice of a Global French Literature.
