Professor Zalloua has been teaching Medieval and Renaissance French literature at Whitman since 2003. His book Montaigne and the Ethics of Skepticism (Rookwood Press, 2005) focuses on ethics in the work of sixteenth-century essayist Michel de Montaigne, and his R eading Unruly: Interpretation and Its Ethical Demands (University of Nebraska Press: 2014) examines works across modern French literature. Professor Zalloua is the editor of The Comparatist, and has also served as guest editor for issues of L'Esprit Créateur (Spring 2006; Montaigne and the Question of Ethics), and, with Nicole Simek, Dalhousie French Studies (Representations of Trauma in French and Francophone literature, 2007). Previous publications address questions of literary theory, interdisciplinary approaches to philosophy and literature, experimental fiction, and gender studies in a range of articles on early modern and modern authors, including Louise Labé, Agrippa D'Aubigné, Pierre de Ronsard, Denis Diderot, Stendhal, Jean-Paul Sartre, Alain Robbe-Grillet, and Marguerite Duras.
