Dr. Felisa Vergara Reynolds is Assistant Professor of French for the Department of French and Italian at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Felisa primarily works on the legacy and impact of colonialism on literature in French, from the former colonies. In particular, she focuses on literature in French from the Caribbean, West Africa, and North Africa. Felisa is particularly concerned with the continued influence of colonialism in the post-colonial era, and how it is represented in cultural production. She is currently wrapping up work on my book The Author as Cannibal: Re-Writing in Francophone Literature as a Postcolonial Genre (1969-1995), which will be published by Nebraska Press in the Fall of 2021.
