Author Biography - Roger Celestin

ROGER CELESTIN and ELIANE DALMOLIN are both Professors of French at the University of Connecticut, USA, and co-chairs of the French Studies Program. They have worked extensively in the area of Nineteenth and Twentieth century French culture and literature and are the co-editors of the only academic journal exclusively dedicated to contemporary France published in the USA. Having lived and worked in both 'worlds', the authors are academically and personally well versed in French and Francophone modernity, as well as with its American perception. The fact that they have been teaching, for close to six years, the course for which this book could be used, makes them acutely aware of the specific needs of its potential student audience.
