McRae Amoss

McRae Amoss, Professor of French, published an article in the Spring-Summer 2011 issue of Nineteenth-Century French Studies.  “La Question sociale et la recherche de soi dans Lucien Leuwen de Stendhal” shows how the incipient labor movement and the claims of the working class become an aspect of society against which the sensitive individual in search of his social identity must define others as well as himself in Stendhal’s posthumously-published novel of July Monarchy France.  Next month Mc will deliver a paper on “Marriage and Social Reform in Sand’s Le Compagnon du Tour de France and Balzac’s Les Paysans” at the Nineteenth-Century French Studies Colloquium in Philadelphia.  Research for both studies was made possible by a 2004-05 sabbatical leave.
