Professor Andrew Jones is Assistant Professor of French at Ursinus College. He received his Ph.D. from the Pennsylvania State University in 2019. His interdisciplinary teaching and research bridge twentieth and twenty-first century French and Francophone Studies, Film Studies, Philosophy, and History. Specializing in the cinemas and literatures of postwar France, Francophone Africa, and Francophone Eastern Europe, he has a particular interest in representations of trauma. His current project explores the notion of testimony through the lens of cinematic storytelling in the wake of extreme human catastrophes including the Holocaust, Colonialism, and the Gulag.
