Melinda A. Cro, PhD Associate Professor, French Graduate Advisor, French Dept. of Modern Languages Kansas State University
My research and teaching focus on the intersection between art, literature, and place. As a literature scholar and digital humanist, I'm particularly interested in harnessing the potential the digital offers both to enrich the classroom and enhance access to scholarship to a larger audience. In an increasingly globalized world with ever-developing means of communication, one's ability to discern and interpret what one views and reads is essential and forms the focal point of my teaching.
Having served as French Language Program Coordinator and as Director of Graduate Studies for the Dept. of Modern Languages at Kansas State, I am keenly aware of the challenges and benefits that second language instruction offer in higher education. Through an individualized approach that encourages cultural competency and linguistic proficiency, my classroom serves as an experimental lab space wherein students may explore and practice in a safe way that encourages confidence and prioritizes learning.
