Mark Wolff is Associate Professor of French, Coordinator of Global Studies, and Chair of Modern Languages at Hartwick College. His research interests include nineteenth-century popular literature, the twentieth- and twenty-first-century group of writers known as the Oulipo, and computational methods in the digital humanities. His teaching focuses on finding ways to help students discover themselves in French so that they can develop the necessary linguistic and cultural competency to engage the world. He enjoys working with students seeking to combine French or Global Studies with other academic programs to design a unique and personal interdisciplinary experience.
