Denison University’s 178th Commencement took place on Saturday, May 18. Watch the ceremony in its entirety including commencement keynote speaker Jennifer Garner ’94.
Denison University’s Board of Trustees has recently awarded tenure to seven members of the faculty. Among those who have been granted tenure and will be promoted to associate professor in the fall of 2019 is Charles St-Georges of the Department of Modern Languages.
Charles St-Georges joined Denison’s Department of Modern Languages in 2013. He began his academic career studying theatre before his intellectual curiosity led him to study language and culture. He earned his doctorate and master’s at Arizona State University and his bachelor’s at Brigham Young University. He has taught courses in Spanish, Queer Studies, and French, and has served as Production Editor for the academic journal Chasqui. His research mainly focuses on the intersections between normative discourse and representations of time in narratives from the Hispanic world. He is particularly concerned with the relationship between Western historicism, the supposedly apolitical realm of chronological time, and the persistent use of ghosts and specters to represent historical injustice in Latin American and Peninsular film.
