UCLA Faculty on Tour

Professor Sara Melzer
Department of French & Francophone Studies
Professor Sara E. Melzer specializes in the cultural and literary history of France. A faculty member for over 25 years, she has published four books and multiple articles on early modern France. Her most recent book centered on a “forgotten” history in which the French church and state promoted interracial marriages between American Indians and the French. Her current research project now shifts to the contemporary era -- she is now focusing on the social dance scene as a window through which to understand French culture and Franco-American relations. Her research has been supported by the American Council of Learned Societies, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the UCLA Academic Senate. She spends each summer in Paris and has traveled widely in France.
