Name: Justine Ruyer

Program: French

Year of Study: 2nd year

Nominated By: Anna Klosowska

Research Interests: women and gender studies in French, as well as the Nouveau Roman, a French literary movement from the 1950s and 1960s. 

Favorite thing about being a graduate student at Miami: I especially love teaching French at Miami and sharing my culture. In my four semesters here, I got to teach 100 and 200 level courses in French and saw students develop a passion for the language, which comforted me in my decision to become a full-time teacher after my master's. 

"Consistently has the highest student evaluations in her classes and highest numbers of students attending her French Table. Justine is an exchange student from the University of Burgundy in Dijon, France, founded in 1722."
