Vanwesenbeeck featured on Los Angeles Review of Books website

Dr. Birger Vanwesenbeek

Birger Vanwesenbeek, associate professor in the Department of English, was recently featured on the website of the Los Angeles Review of Books as having one of the magazine’s most-viewed articles of the week.

His essay offered an analysis of the French novel “Madame Bovary” written by Gustave Flaubert. Dr. Vanwesenbeek sought to integrate the local community into his research and analysis of the novel. His research included drawing on the final typescript of “Madame Bovary” and archival documents. Furthermore, the essay describes the appeal of Flaubert’s novel for Western New York.

The Los Angeles Review of Books constitutes one of the world’s leading magazines for literary criticism in English. The essay was competed during Vanwesenbeek’s fall sabbatical and can be accessed at: https://lareviewofbooks.org/essay/reading-madame-bovary-in-the-provinces.
