Ph.D. 2007

Taïeb Berrada, Ph.D. in French, completed his dissertation “L’Intrus postcolonial maghrébin dans la littérature, le cinéma et la bande dessinée francophones” in June 2007. His research interests include 20th and 21st century Francophone literatures, North African literatures & cultures, 20th century French theory, postcolonial theory & film, and Francophone bande-dessinée. He taught at the University of California at Irvine from 2007 to 2009, and joined the Lehigh University faculty in Fall 2009. Prof. Berrada is particularly interested in analyzing the complex relationship between France and the Maghreb through the theoretical lenses of identity, space, traumatic memory, and displacement in view of a reassessment of contemporary claims to transnationalism.
