Kyrie Foster receives Molière French Grad Student Award

Join us in congratulating PhD candidate Kyrie Foster, who has been selected as the third annual recipient of the Molière French Graduate Student Award. Kyrie was chosen by the French and Francophone Studies program on the basis of her excellent work on the PhD dissertation, as well as outstanding teaching and contributions to the department. The working title of the dissertation is: "Transgression, Transformation, and Transcendence: Queer Spatial Subversions in Nineteenth Century French Literature.”

This cash award was made possible by a donation from UCD French Department alumnus Zachary Polsky, PhD, who completed a dissertation on Molière under the direction of Professor Georges Van den Abbeele and was awarded the degree in 2002. French and Francophone Studies is very grateful for Dr. Polsky’s generous contribution to the graduate program.
