Gallouët to present second paper

Catherine Gallouët, a professor of French and Francophone Studies, will present a second paper at a conference this summer.

She will present “Making the African intelligible: establishing 'topoi' and discursive strategies” (Rendre l’Africain intelligible: mise en place de topoi et stratégies discursives,) as part of a roundtable discussion on Genealogy of Knowledge on Black Africa in the 18th Century, July 8-15 at the 12th International Congress of the Enlightenment at Montpelier, Vt.

Her first presentation, “Marriage, legitimacy and differences – Practices of matrimony in Haiti” (Mariage, légitimité et différences – Pratiques matrimoniales dans les chroniques sur Haïti), was given at the Colloque International SATOR, “Le mariage dans la littérature narrative avant 1800,” June 27-29 at Université Paris-Nanterre in France.

A member of the faculty since 1986, she holds bachelor's degrees from the Académie de Grenoble and Hope College, and her master's and doctorate from Rutgers University.
