I have a double Masters & a Ph.D from Stanford U. in French & Western Civilization (XXth century French literature, criticism; Western literature, philosophy from Homer to Heidegger) - where I worked with many prominent people in the field: René Girard (my dissertation advisor) Michel Serres, Henri Godard, Alphonse Juilland, as well as textbook authors Ralph Hester and John Barson. I have taught at Stanford University, Iowa State, Middlebury College, Carnegie Mellon, and Duquesne University.

In Paris, I went to l'École Alsacienne (1964-68), and worked as an unpaid librarian (in exchange for access to the archives) for a private collection of Gallimard press (1985-86) at the university for Paris VII.

In addition to teaching university French in the Pittsburgh area, I am a technical writer and web developer.

À très bientôt,

Marc Snyder, Ph.D.
