Tim Raser came to UGA in 1985 after a first job at the University of Tulsa; here he teaches lower-level language courses, undergraduate literature surveys, and graduate courses in French.  His research has to do with 19th-century poetics and æsthetics; his most recent book (2015) is titled "Baudelaire and Photography."  His current project concerns Hugo's writings on the death penalty.
