Leslie Kealhofer

Visiting Assistant Professor of French


Leslie received her B.A. in French and Political Science from the University of Notre Dame and was awarded her M.A. and Ph.D. in French from Florida State University.

Her research interests include 20th and 21st century Francophone literatures and cinemas, postcolonial studies, women’s studies, and film studies. The first axis of her current research focuses on cinematic representations of migrant women from the Maghreb in France and women of Maghrebi origin in France. The second axis of her research aims to interrogate the dynamics of female friendships – relationships that often span cultures, languages, generations, and geographical borders – in cinematic and literary works set in three distinct geographical spaces of the Francophone world: North Africa, the Caribbean, and Metropolitan France.

Leslie teaches French language courses at Westminster and is also the French Club adviser.
