Juliette Cherbuliez, Faculty Fellow, Spring 2006
Juliette Cherbuliez (French and Italian, College of Liberal Arts)
Professor Cherbuliez focuses on marginal and liminal subjects in the early modern period who, by their very exclusion, give definition to the shifting limits of state authority during that era. During the tenure of her fellowship, she worked on a project that reexamined French literary history and the intersection of cosmopolitanism as a major thread in this history, focusing on the figure of Medea. Some of this work came to fruition in the later publication of “Médée Cosmopolite,” Penser la Terreur, Actes de Cerisy-la-Salle, Presses universitaires de Dijon, 2009.
Professor Cherbuliez is also one of the organizers for the ongoing Theorizing Early Modern Studies Collaborative.
