Denise Steppé Carroll received her undergraduate education in Louvain, Belgium. Fluent in four languages, she served as translator-interpreter at the Canadian Embassy in Brussels, before moving to the States. She completed her graduate education at The Ohio State University. She earned a MA in Francophone Studies and wrote a thesis on the disillusion of independence in Kourama’s Les soleils des indépendances. She obtained her PhD in French literature with a dissertation on the Essais of Montaigne. Inspired by the Lacanian theories of language, she explores the nature of the subject, the Montaignian Self. She has published and presented articles in this area of French Studies and continues to do so. She taught survey courses of French literature and French language courses at OSU and Denison University. In New York City she taught French language courses at New York University, Fordham University and CUNY. She has been teaching French language classes in the department since 2006.
