Felicia McCarren

Professor of French at Tulane University and a member of the faculty in Film Studies. She is currently serving as the President of EDUCO, an association for inter-university exchange in Paris. She is the author of Dance Pathologies: Performance, Poetics, Medicine (1998) and Dancing Machines: Choreographies of the Age of Mechanical Reproduction (2003) both from Stanford University Press, and articles on performance, cinema, and new media, focusing on how performing bodies—especially female—have influenced the modern medical, visual and industrial technologies that have affected life in bodies, and how they have responded to historical measures for reading bodily meanings, such as symptomatology or scientific management. She has also translated two books of French philosophy: Michel Serres’ Rome: The Book of Foundations and Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe’s Musica Ficta; Figures of Wagner. Felicia’s forthcoming book, French Moves; The Cultural Politics of “le hip hop”, (Oxford University Press, 2013) explores the urban dance of minorities in France. Her work-in-progress, on colonial and contemporary cinema in Morocco, was awarded NEH funding in 2011.
