Aubrey Korneta received her PhD from NYU’s Department of French Literature, Thought and Culture in 2017. Her dissertation, “Writing (in) the School: Codes. Constraints. Emancipation?,” examines a growing corpus of French autobiographical novels and films set in the classroom and contends that it is through representations of the French classroom, and in particular, the relationships to the codes and norms of the French language, that the evolving images and criticisms of the French school system are most salient. Her research focuses on 20th-21st century French and Francophone literature and film, with a particular interest in the representation of education, youth, and identity formation. She has taught a wide variety of language and humanities courses in the Department of French Literature, Thought and Culture and the College Core Curriculum at NYU and was a guest faculty member at Sarah Lawrence College in 2018-2019.
