Dr. Oancea is an Assistant Professor of French with the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures.
Dr. Oancea's research and teaching interests are in 19th-century French literature and culture, including popular and visual culture, science and literature, as well as in film and new media. Her courses cover topics ranging from French fantastic literature to bande dessinée. In addition to discovering great works, in these courses students engage with criticism and theory.
Her book manuscript analyzes the literary representation of inventors in the larger context of the 19th century's narrative of progress. It brings together decadence, naturalism, and early science fiction, engaging with the role of science in French discourse of national identity.
