Jonathan Brooks Slaughter is an MA Fellow in French, serving as instructor of elementary French language courses. His MA thesis, for which he was awarded the Bambas Prize in French Literary Studies from Middlebury Language Schools, focused on the controversial 2006 novel Les bienveillantes. Subsequently he has researched Antonin Artaud's 1936 trip to Mexico, and he has delivered conference papers on Proust and Latin American literature and other comparative topics. Apart from academic work, Jonathan has been involved in translation projects (from French and Spanish) and several communities of theater-making and poetry. He is delighted to be teaching at UNC Charlotte this academic year.
