Carine Sigaud is a PhD student in Francophone Studies at the University of Georgia.
Her research focuses on taking a linguistic approach to study literary texts. She is especially interested in the way authors have represented different categories of underrepresented peoples' speech as well as the sociological and philosophical implications of these stylistic choices.
She wrote her masters theses on 19th century post realism, with a particular focus on Émile Zola's novels and on Anatole France's Contemporary History.
Prior to enrolling at UGA, Carine taught middle school, high school and undergraduate level courses in Paris, France. As much as a way of sharing her knowledge of a language and a culture, she perceives teaching as a unique opportunity to learn from her students.
She serves as a website editor for the Department of Romance Languages.
