Professional Bio

Emma Rossby is a dual-title PhD candidate in French and Francophone Studies and Visual Studies. With a focus on contemporary Belgium, her research examines how public educators use bandes dessinées as pedagogical tools to mediate discussions of race, gender, and colonial histories outside of academic spheres. At Penn State, Emma has taught courses on topics such as memory and identity in Francophone visual cultures, literary and artistic representations of the self, and French cultural history.
