Dr. Pullin will give a short presentation based on three interviews she conducted in France in 2010-11. The scholars she will present (Helene Cixous, Anne Emanuelle Berger, and Damien Tissot) represent three generations of researchers whose work offers unique contributions to language and literature, feminist thought and gender studies.
