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 just finished the translation of Phil Watts' posthumous essay Le Cinéma de Roland Barthes, which will be published in the fall of 2015 by French publishing house De l'Incidence.
