Doris Y. KadishDistinguished Research Professor 2006

Doris Y. Kadish, Professor of French and Women’s Studies, studies the nature of power in politics and how it affects the issues of gender and politics by analyzing the roles that these concepts play in the writings of Claude Simon – a modern French novelist – and other writings produced immediately after the French Revolution. She also is heavily involved in the discovery, translation and analysis of French abolitionist literature written by women speaking about against slavery. Kadish has authored two books on women’s lives in bondage and the activism that they inspired through their writing, in addition to multiple journal articles, reviews and translations.
