Past WWU Courses
Lindsey Leigh Smith has been teaching undergraduate language, literature, and culture courses at Western Washington University since 2019. Before joining the WWU community, she taught at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (where she also served as the Assistant Director of the Center for Interdisciplinary French Studies), Aix-Marseille Université, Luther College, and as a language assistant in Guadeloupe. A scholar of the francophone Caribbean, Lindsey focuses on the interplay of French and Creole in contemporary Caribbean literature as well as on the intersections of literature, history, and the performing arts in Guadeloupe and Martinique. Drawing on the work of Édouard Glissant, among others, she is currently working on a project called Writing Relation: Multimodal Resistance in the francophone Caribbean that examines the ways in which multimodal artforms and their literary representations have been, and continue to be, instrumental in decolonial movements across the region.
