Dr. Genevieve Waite specializes in contemporary translingual Francophone literature, linguistics, multilingualism, translation theory, and self-translation. She is the author of Pas à pas : méthode d'anglais (2009) and Ma Méthode d’anglais (2013). Other publications include a peer-reviewed article, “Nancy Huston’s Polyglot Texts: Linguistic Limits and Transgressions” (2015) and two essays in the Critical Survey of American Literature with Salem Press (2016). More recently, an article on Julien Green’s self-translated texts was accepted for publication with French Forum. Her research has been supported by the University of Virginia’s Lillian Gary Taylor Fellowship, a PSC/CUNY Adjunct Professional Development Fund grant, a Doctoral Student Research Grant, and an Enhanced Chancellor’s Fellowship from The Graduate Center, CUNY. Since 2012, Dr. Waite has taught all levels of the French language as well as courses in Business French, European literature, and French and Francophone literature.
