I have just completed my doctoral dissertation on the 17th century Maxims of La Rochefoucauld, and I am currently editing a collaborative book project on early modern French libertines. I have previously published articles on Marivaux and Flaubert as well as ESL workbooks.My next project, in no way inspired by the impending arrival of my first born, will pertain to analyzing discourses of authority, most notably those of parents trying (and generally failing) to manipulate children.
