Kristen Stern


Ph.D. Boston University
M.A. Boston College
B.A. Nazareth College


My research and teaching interests include contemporary francophone literature, performance studies, cultural studies and digital humanities. In my current book project, Writing on Stage: Performative Authorship and Contemporary Francophone African Writers, I investigate how today's writers from the continent working in French construct their authorial personae across print and digital platforms, and in personal appearances.

I have taught French language and literatures at Bates College, Boston University, Simmons College and Boston College.
