Meet Anne Graham

MLLC faculty member Anne Graham, studies sixteenth and seventeenth century French literature.

"Storytelling is at the heart of what it means to be human. It is through storytelling to that we make sense of our own experiences and get a chance to try to understand someone else’s experience. Research in literature is all about storytelling: What makes a good story? What is the storyteller’s goal or motivation? What is the impact on the reader or spectator? ... Literature is just storytelling that has come to us, eventually, through written form. Studying the kinds of stories others have told at different moments of history can help us to better understand the world and ourselves."
