McClure’s co-edited “Teaching French Neoclassical Tragedy” out now
The Modern Language Association has just published a new co-edited volume by Ellen McClure, UIC Professor of French and History, and Hélène Bilis, Associate Professor of French at Wellesley College. Teaching French Neoclassical Tragedy "addresses both the history of French neoclassical tragedy—its audiences, performance practice, and development as a genre—and the ideas these works raise, such as necessity, free will, desire, power, and moral behavior in the face of limited choices". A collection of essays by important scholars in 17th-century studies, the volume demonstrates how the plays can be taught through a variety of lenses while engaging fields like postcolonial studies.
