12-month Lecturer of French

Anne Simpson joined the Department of French Hispanic and Italian Studies as a lecturer in 2009. Her doctoral thesis, Jeanne d’Arc au Front de 14: le nationalisme fin-de-siècle (on the Third Republic and right-wing nationalism), reflects her broader interests in the history of ideas and cultural history.

As a former Sessional in the Department of Language and Literacy Education (Faculty of Education, UBC), she has worked in teacher-training, as well as on Curriculum development and on-line course design (Gramligne Project — UBC, B.C. Ministry of Education).

At the The Nineteenth-Century Music Research Center directed by prof H. Robert Cohen, she served as an Editorial Assistant for La Critique musicale Berlioz. She is interested in editorial work and processes.
