Research Interest: Medieval Latin and French vernacular poetry and song; Courtly love
Christopher Gobeille is a Ph.D. student in the Department of French and Francophone Studies at UCLA. His research interests involve the study of Courtly Love rhetoric in the poetry and music of late Medieval France. His principal research aim is to approach the works of Guillaume de Machaut from an interdisciplinary, literary-musicological perspective. Additionally, as a recipient of the Mellon Graduate Fellowship for Post-classical Latin Studies, Christopher is interested in exploring the relationship between Medieval French vernacular literature and Latin literature (both classical and post-classical). Christopher is also an accomplished classical pianist and has served on the faculty of multiple private fine arts schools in the Los Angeles area.
