Flora Champy joined the Department of French and Italian as an Assistant Professor of French in September 2018. She holds a dual PhD in French Literature from the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon and Rutgers University. Her research focuses on eighteenth-century French political literature and philosophy, with special interests in classical reception, theater and film studies. Her work on Jean-Jacques Rousseau's reception of ancient Greece and Rome ultimately examines the relevance of ancient democratic models for modern times.

GradFUTURES is an invaluable opportunity to learn that the skills you acquire in graduate school open doors instead of closing them."
