Nathalie Debrauwere-Miller specializes in twentieth and twenty-first century French and Francophone Literature (North African Arab-Muslim and Jewish writers), feminism and Jewish studies, especially the relationship between Jews and Arab-Muslims in France and the way it reflects the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. More recently she has been working on the representations of terrorism in Francophone literature. The common denominator in her research is the interrogation of minority and gender identities in the French context.
Her publications include Israeli-Palestinian Conflict in the Francophone World (Routledge, 2010) and Envisager Dieu avec Edmond Jabès (Les éditions du Cerf, 2007), as well as numerous articles on French literature, feminism and Jewish studies. She has taught at the University of Maryland, Emory University, North Carolina State University and at Duke University. Her work contributes to the ongoing interpretation of this crisis of the French republican model in a pluralistic society that includes the largest Muslim and Jewish populations in Europe.
Professor Debrauwere-Miller was the recipient of “The Jeffrey Nordhaus Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching in the Humanities” in the College of Arts and Sciences in 2008.
