Originally from Dominica, Dr. Pauline Rémy graduated with a degree in Science du Langage et de la Communication (Science of Language and Communication) from the University of Franche-Comté in Besançon, France before going on to attain her Master’s degree in French Language and Francophone Studies from Ohio University and her PhD in French and Francophone World Languages from the University of Iowa. She joined the Westmont faculty in 2021 after teaching for five years at Hope College. Along with teaching Beginning to Advanced French, Dr. Rémy has pioneered three new classes within Westmont’s French program: Introduction to Francophone Studies, Literature in Translation, and French III: Contemporary French and Francophone Cultures. She has also recruited new French students and plans to pioneer a French film festival, create a Westmont program abroad (Quebec, France or a North African French-speaking country) and collaborate with French programs at other Christian colleges.
