Dr. Nancy Durbin has a Bachelor’s degree in French and Political Science from the University of Missouri-Columbia and her Master’s and PhD in French Literature from Washington University in St. Louis. She has taught at Lindenwood since 2001 and is currently serving as Chair of the Department of Foreign Languages. Dr. Durbin teaches at all levels of the French curriculum, from the introductory level through 40000-level literature seminars. Though she once specialized in 18th-century French literature, Dr. Durbin now considers herself to be a generalist and has enjoyed expanding her research interests into many genres and historical periods as she has developed a wide variety of literature seminars. While she still enjoys studying and teaching the early novel, other interests include the intersection of classical mythology and French theatre, issues of post-colonial identity in Francophone literature, and French autobiography. Dr. Durbin is the faculty advisor to the Cercle français and is the director of the Study Abroad Program in Caen, France.
