Dr. Dolliann Margaret Hurtig, an associate professor of French at Louisiana Tech, presented at the 88th National Conference of the American Association of Teachers of French held in Philadelphia, Penn.
Hurtig presided over the July Session as co-chair of the Promotion of French in the U.S. section. The session addressed such issues as problems encountered when adapting a novella to the cinema to pragmatic considerations of how educators teach film in their courses at both the university and the secondary school levels, with particular focus on the Venice Film Festival Award-winning Film,”Monsieur Ibrahim et les fleurs du Coran.”
Hurtig specializes in French literature and received her Ph.D. in French from Tulane University.
