About the Author

Julia L. Frengs is assistant professor of French at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln


Corporeal Archipelagos is a profoundly significant and beautifully conceived study of the French-language work of four women from French Polynesia and New Caledonia that combines a thorough knowledge of this literature with a strong theoretical approach. Julia Frengs's expertise on Oceanian authors Dewe Gorode, Claudine Jacques, Ari'irau, and Chantal Spitz comes through in an unprecedented examination of the centrality of the body to questions with ecological, historical, national, political, sexual, and social import in an oft-overlooked region of Francophone women's writing. -- Alison Rice, University of Notre Dame
Anyone interested in Pacific Francophone literature should have this book, as it is a very complete work about the question of the Oceanian body in French speaking literature. -- Titaua Porcher-Wiart, Universite de la Polynesie Francaise
