2014–15 Visiting Fellow
Susan Hiner is a professor of French and francophone studies at Vassar. During her Visiting Fellowship at the Library, Hiner researched Behind the Seams: Women, Fashion, and Work in Nineteenth-Century France, which was the topic of her evening program. She is also the author of Accessories to Modernity: Fashion and the Feminine in Nineteenth-Century France.
The American Library in Paris Visiting Fellowship was created in 2013 to nurture and sustain a heritage as old as the Library itself: deepening French-American understanding. The Visiting Fellowship offer writers and researchers an opportunity to pursue a creative project in Paris for a month or longer while participating actively in the life of the American Library.
The Visiting Fellowship is made possible through the generous support of The de Groot Foundation.
