Welcome to our new Professor and Teaching Assistant!

We welcome new professor Therese Banks and our new teaching assistant Jennilyn Leroy to our community. 


Therese holds a Ph.D. in French from Harvard University.  Her research focuses on representations of religious violence in medieval and early modern French Literature, particularly around the Crusades and the French Wars of Religion.

Jennilyn is from Poitiers, France and has a Bachelor’s degree in English Studies and is working towards a Master’s degree in French as a Foreign Language. You’ll see Jennilyn at the language tables regularly. 

We’re excited to have them here!
