Collaborative Humanities Fellow, French and Francophone Studies
Last updated July 1, 2022


Chanelle Dupuis is a third-year doctoral student in the Department of French and Francophone Studies. Her research focuses on the representation of odors in French and Francophone literature. At the intersection of smell studies and trauma studies, she focuses on the way odors can be triggers for past traumatic events and how stench denounces a slow violence on bodies and environments in 20th-century French literature. She is also interested in how odors can be indicators of environmental change and the shifting scents of an environment. Before coming to Brown, she received a B.A. in French and Spanish from Florida State University.
