To the Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Students in the Department of French,
It gives me great pleasure to announce the appointment of Professor Pierre Saint-Amand as chair of French, pending formal approval by the Yale Corporation. His term will be for three years, effective July 1, 2020. I am most grateful to Professor Saint-Amand for taking on this important leadership position.
I also wish to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to outgoing chair Alice Kaplan for her outstanding departmental leadership. Please join me in thanking Professors Kaplan and Saint-Amand for their service to the department and to Yale.
With warmest wishes,
