Dr. Evelyne M. Bornier’s co-authored book Parcours Louisianais: Panorama de la littérature francophone de Louisiane de ses origines à 1900 was released by UL Press in June. Bornier is a professor of French in the Department of World Languages, Literatures & Cultures. The book was co-authored with Dr. Margaret Marshall, a renowned Louisiana Creole and Cajun linguist.
The book offers a unique collection of Louisiana poems, fables, tales, novels, song lyrics and historical texts in French, with light works from the 1680s to 1900 that reflect the diversity of voices present throughout Louisiana’s history.
Bornier is also the author of Autour de Suzanne Césaire, Manifestes cannibales ou comment repenser les Antilles, recently published in France by Éditions Passage(s).
