Yann Robert (Ph.D. Princeton, French) focuses primarily on the intersection of literature, justice, and politics in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century France. His critical edition of Jean-Louis Laya's revolutionary play L'ami des Lois, co-edited with Mark Darlow, was published in 2011 by the Modern Languages Research Association. Next year, Robert will be taking a tenure-track position at the University of Ilinois in Chicago.
