Professional Service


I currently serve as the co-chair of the Nineteenth-Century French Studies Association with Andrea Goulet from Penn. We help the local organizers of the annual conference, administer the association’s awards, and promote the accomplishments of our members through our website and mailing list.



I also represented the Nineteenth-Century French division on the MLA’s Delegate Assembly for three years from 2015-17.


I have been chair of the department of French and Italian at Brigham Young University since June 2009. Over that time, as a department we have added a number of labs to help students improve their French, increased internship offerings, and started a successful French camp for high school students.

I am also a member of the advisory committee for programs abroad in France. In addition to our regular internship and study abroad programs, we are piloting a direct enrollment + internship program  in Bordeaux.

Other assignments and past assignments can be viewed on my CV.
