Graduate Student


Elise Finielz is currently pursuing her PhD at Cornell University in the department of Romance Studies, specializing in French Caribbean literature along with postcolonial studies. At the intersection of Sociology of Literature, Literary History, Poetics and Textual Analysis, her research focuses on women writers from the Francophone Caribbean, their access to the literary field and their contribution to Caribbean literature of French expression and the postcolonial canon. Women literary creation is analyzed in its social context of production as the site of a subjective and gendered experience intersecting with a collective history.
