Director of Graduate Studies

Office: CMLL 257A

Dr. Lucas Wood earned his doctorate in Comparative Literature and Literary Theory at the University of Pennsylvania in 2012. He specializes in medieval French literature and is particularly interested in the simultaneous production and deconstruction of literary, socio-political, and gendered ideologies in Old French fiction and especially in courtly and chivalric cultures. As well as teaching medieval and early modern literature at the graduate level, Dr. Wood leads a wide range of undergraduate courses aimed at developing students' French communication skills through provocative exercises in close reading and cultural criticism.
