Hannah Wegmann received her PhD in Modern French Studies from the University of Maryland in 2018. Her research focuses on narratives of urbanization within the 19th century French novel, exploring ways that the historical phenomenon of migration can function as a theoretical lens to revisit canonical narratives and understand the social, moral, and physical evolutions present. Her other interests include the intersections of 19th century art history, literature, and applied linguistic theory, as well as religious intertextuality in early 20th century literature. Dr. Wegmann has taught a variety of French language and literature courses at the University of Maryland since 2011 and she is currently the TA coordinator. Before teaching at the university level, she spent several years teaching at the primary and secondary levels, both in traditional and classical schools. She lives on Capitol Hill with her husband, son, and daughter.
