Camille Kennedy is a 5th year PhD candidate in the French Department. She obtained an MA in Philosophy from the University of Dallas in 2015, and a BA in French and Philosophy from the University of Dallas in 2013 (summa cum laude, 2nd Honors). She has experience teaching, assistant teaching, and designing courses in beginning and intermediate French, English grammar, world literature, and English literature with experience at Rutgers University, University of Dallas, Cistercian Preparatory School, and Our Lady of Atonement Preparatory School. She most recently studied at the École Normale Supérieure de Paris. She studies 19th century literature, focusing on French–language translations of British works. Her dissertation argues that a good understanding of the history of translation in France and its relation to other modes of writing can yield fascinating perspectives on such varied works as the earliest French adaptations of Austen to canonical Balzac novels to François-Victor Hugo’s Shakespeare translations.
