In addition to his responsibilities as Chair, Dr. Shinabargar teaches a variety of courses dealing with French and Francophone language, culture and literature. His principal area of research includes 19th and 20th century French Literature, with a concentration on poetry and comparative studies. His interests include the role of violence in modern aesthetics, the rhetoric of literary movements, and explorations of expressivity in poetic language—in particular, phonetic structures and their articulation. His most recent publications deal with the work of Lautréamont, Henri Michaux, René Char, and Philippe Jaccottet, among others. A book, entitled The Revolting Body of Poetry, is forthcoming.
