Sophie Queuniet received her Ph.D. from Yale University in 1999. Her dissertation on the stakes of intelligence in Marcel Proust’s work has been the starting point of a broader interest in the 19th and 20th century theories of intelligence and education.
Her professional experience has been mainly focused on the teaching of French as a foreign language. She co-authored the French Online project with Chris Jones at Carnegie Mellon University (link), which received the 2007 Access to Language Education Award for best publicly available on-line instructional materials for language.
Recently, she has been working on a French textbook for Graduate Students at the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University.
She is currently finishing the translation of Phil Watts' posthumous book, Roland Barthes’s Cinema.
