Caroline is an Assistant Professor of Teaching (French). She has a PhD in French Studies from the University of Toronto (2012) and a Master 2 in Comparative Literature from the University of Paris III Sorbonne-Nouvelle. She was a previous faculty member of the University of Toronto (Ontario), the University of Waterloo (Ontario) and St Mary’s University (Nova Scotia). She is the author of Combinatoires ludiques : littérature, contrainte et mathématique (Peter Lang 2020).

Caroline is currently developing a textbook series (co-author) that adapts the Common European Reference of Languages to the diversity of the francophone communities of Canada, including the indigenous francophone communities (Canadian Scholars’ Press 2023-2026). She is also working on developing an experiential learning course for undergraduate students interested in interacting with the diversity of the francophone communities in Canada.

Challenging norms and stereotypes is always on her to-do list. On that aspect, she is currently interested in the representation of gender in the French language. One of her work analyses the modalities of non-representing gender in Anne Garréta’s novel Sphinx (“Pour une lecture queer de l’énigme dans Sphinx d’Anne Garréta : entre clinamen et variables sur le genre”, Études littéraires, 50.2 « Dérivées variables : littérature et mathématiques au XXe et XXIe siècle », (Forthcoming).
