Dec 1, 2010 | General News, Liberal Arts

A Louisiana Tech associate professor of French has published a new article in a national journal.
Dr. Dolliann Margaret Hurtig, who specializes in French literature, had “On Stage in Dupeyron’s Film Adaptation of ‘Monsieur Ibrahim’: The Problem with Labels: Arab, Jew and Prostitute” published in the National Bulletin for the American Association of Teachers of French.
In the article, Hurtig observes how the film raises the consciousness of students about the uneasiness associated with stereotyping. The article developed from a paper delivered at the 2010 National Conference of the American Association of Teachers of French held in Philadelphia. Hurtig served as co-chair of the Promotion of French in the U.S. session.
