Dr. Sophie Maríñez is an Associate Professor of French and Spanish at Borough of Manhattan Community College (CUNY) and the author of Mademoiselle de Montpensier: Writings, Châteaux, and Female Self-Construction in Early Modern France (Brill/Rodopi, 2017), which is based on the dissertation she completed in the Ph.D. Program in French at the Graduate Center. This monograph examines female self-construction strategies through the interplay between writing and the symbolic import of châteaux. This book is the recipient of an NEH award, two PSC-CUNY grants, the Marandon Fellowship, the Carole & Morton Olshan Dissertation Fellowship, and the 2010 Carolyn G. Heilbrun Dissertation Prize awarded by the Women’s Studies Certificate Program.
Co-sponsored with the Ph.D. Program in French.
