Home


Welcome to our undergraduate majors in literary and cultural studies, languages, and linguistics, and our Ph.D. program in Comparative Literature. In an increasingly global world the study of literatures and languages has never been more urgent than it is today. Our students' writing and research respond to this urgency, producing pluralistic, multilingual, theoretical, and historical forms of knowledge and critique. The literary, cultural, and linguistic fluency and insight one gains through the programs offered by the faculty in Comparative Literature remain for a lifetime. I invite you to join us.

Senior French Lecturer Debuts First Novel

(10/13/2014) Congratulations to Dr. Christine Duvergé on the publication of her first novel, Camp Agonie

From the back cover: « Dolorès a des renvois de douleurs. Tout est si noir dans ce pays de soleil pour une fille en vertige. De la Californie où elle habite à Camp Agonie, misérable village de Maurice où elle a grandi, Dolorès prend le chemin de la délivrance. Un roman lancinant qui explore les recoins de corps constellés d'échardes et qui veulent tous oublier l'inoubliable. Christine Duvergé réussit avec ce premier roman à nous emmener dans un univers à la fois crépusculaire et attirant. La littérature mauricienne compte une nouvelle voix. Elle est singulière, profonde, attachante. »
