Professor Michelle Bolduc


Professor Michelle Bolduc welcomes enquiries about postgraduate supervision (MRes, MPhil, PhD) in the fields of Translation Studies, thirteenth-century French, Occitan, and Italian Literature, and Modern Rhetoric (specifically the New Rhetoric Project).

She has taught a wide-ranging number of courses in Translation Studies as well as in French and Comparative Literature, including MA-level translation theory and applied French to English translation (specialized and literary), both of which she developed for online course delivery. She has also taught graduate seminars thematically related to the topos of translatio. Having taught at both undergraduate and graduate levels, she offers teaching expertise in several additional areas: comparative medieval literature, and European (especially French) intellectual culture—literature, philosophy, and the arts—of both the Middle Ages/Renaissance and the early twentieth century.

Michelle has been recognized for her innovative teaching, having been awarded a fellowship in the University of Wisconsin system-wide Teaching Fellowship Program and invited to the Wakonse Conference on College Teaching sponsored by the Arizona Board of Regents. Since 2012 she has also participated in a French pedagogical project (‘Voix d’Aujourd’hui’), bringing poetry and translation into high schools in Brittany, France, and thus having impact on a non-academic audience.
