The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures is particularly pleased to host two visiting scholars this semester: Dr. Ilse Logie, from Ghent University in Belgium, and Fr. Peter Rogers, S.J, from Loyola University in New Orleans.

Dr. Logie’s research focuses on contemporary Argentinian and Chilean literature. The elective course she will teach at Fordham this fall draws on her current project on multilingualism and (self) translation as principles of identity construction in Latin American and Latino writers.

Fr. Rogers, the Fall 2018 Loyola Chair, specializes in 19th- and 20th-century French literature and its relationship to the theatre and religious writings. Flaubert’s masterpiece, Madame Bovary, is the focus of the course he will offer in French.

We wish them a productive and rewarding semester at Fordham!
