We are very sad to announce that Dr. Paulette Chandler, who was a Lecturer in the Department of French and Francophone Studies between 1995 and 2001 and subsequently Lecturer in French at the University of Southern California, passed away on Monday March 7, 2016. She was a passionate teacher and students enjoyed her courses. Paulette will be remembered by her colleagues and students for her generosity of spirit. Our thoughts are with her family.
