Congratulations to Siham Bouamer, who has accepted a tenure-track offer from Carroll College in Helena, Montana, where she’ll be an assistant professor of French this fall. She is currently preparing to defend her dissertation, which examines the protectorate in Morocco as a dynamic space for women’s literary production and transnational feminist theory and criticism.
Congratulations as well to Alexander Eastman, a PhD candidate in Spanish, who will enter the Dartmouth Fellows Program this fall after winning a highly competitive three-year post-doctoral fellowship. This spring he is participating in the Mark Claster Mamolen Dissertation Workshop, sponsored by the Afro-Latin American Research Institute at the Hutchins Center for African & African American Research, Harvard University. As a member of the inaugural class of the workshop, Alex will be advancing work on his dissertation, “Binding Freedom: Cuba’s Black Public Sphere, 1868–1912.”
As this year’s job season comes to a close, the Department records three tenure-track assistant professorships for our PhDs, as well as one excellent post-doc. Taken together this record testifies not only to the quality of our graduate students but to also to the superior education they receive here at Washington University.
