Dr. Keith Moser wins the 2019 Arts & Sciences Faculty Research Award


Keith Moser is Professor of French and Francophone Studies at Mississippi State University.  After completing his Ph.D. at The University of Tennessee, he joined CMLL in 2007.  In the early stages of his career, he quickly became one of the leading authorities on the complex, nuanced fiction of the Franco-Mauritian author J.M.G. Le Clézio.  Moser is widely considered to be one of the most prominent voices related to ecological issues due to his extensive research in the interrelated fields of Ecocriticism, Biosemiotics, Environmental Philosophy, Ecolinguistics, and the Philosophy of Science.  He launched the interdiscipline of cosmic historiography in a “thought experiment” published by the highly influential journal Green Letters: Studies in Ecocriticism in 2018.  Additionally, he has been examining issues linked to social justice (e.g. Maghrebi/Harki literature, immigration, Diaspora/migration studies, neoliberalism, poverty) since the publication of his first book in 2008.  He has more than eighty major publications including three monographs, two edited books, fourteen edited volumes, fifty-eight articles in peer-reviewed journals, numerous book chapters, interviews, and translations.  Moser was selected as the recipient of the 2010 Humanities Teacher of the Year Award by the Mississippi Humanities Council.  He also accepted the College of Arts & Sciences Research Award for the Humanities in 2015.
