Charlotte Gehl Rouchouze

Charlotte Gehl Rouchouze is a doctoral candidate in the department of French and Italian. She holds a B.A. in French and Anthropology from Emory University and an M.A. in French Cultural Studies from Columbia University's Reid Hall campus in Paris. Her Master's thesis, entitled "Ces écrivains qui renaissent dans la langue française" explored several contemporary authors in France who are non-native French speakers. She is currently in the final phases of a dissertation on novels that narrate the departure of Francophone Jews from North Africa in the 1950’s and ‘60s, including works by Paula Jacques, Albert Memmi, and Hélène Cixous. The project examines in particular the political and ideological implications of these representations.
