As a linguist and medievalist, trained in comparative Romance philology (both medieval language and literature), from 1991 to 2013 I taught graduate courses in history of the French language and French stylistics. I also taught Old French literature (including readings in Old Provençal troubadour poetry), translation, and advanced French grammar, as well as third-year courses in French phonetics, grammar review, composition, and conversation. Other teaching duties included a seminar on research methods and a course in medieval Welsh language and literature.Since 1998 I have served as Managing Editor of the Occitan-oriented journal Tenso, publishing research on medieval and modern Occitan (Provençal) language and literature, as well as three volumes (1986, 1999, 2011) of Occitan linguistic bibliography and 35 years’ worth of annual bibliographic contributions in the US and abroad. I spent 5 happy years as chair of the Alliance Française Hawai’i Membership Committee.
