Jessica Tindira earned a doctorate in French and Francophone Studies from Indiana University in Bloomington, Ind. Writing her dissertation, “Unveiling the Self: Family Secrets and Personal Identities in Contemporary Francophone Novels,” afforded her the opportunity to explore her research interests, which include postcolonial theory and autofiction.
Recent publications include an article in The French Review in May 2019 entitled "La fille de son père: Secrecy, Love and Writing in Assia Djebar's Nulle part dans la maison de mon père." She was one of the recipients of Indiana University's Future Faculty Teaching Fellowship in the 2018-2019 academic year.
Tindira enjoys working with students to build communicative skills and intercultural awareness. The sense of community that grows in a modern language classroom in a small liberal arts college promotes discussion and debate in which she is eager to participate.
