Jen Westmoreland Bouchard

MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota, United States

A curious traveler, intrepid writer and translator, insatiable foodie, literary junkie and international film and art aficionado, Jen holds a B.A. in French and a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Fine Arts from St. Olaf College (Northfield, Minnesota), a Diploma of French Studies from Université de Rennes II (France), and a M.A. in French and Francophone Studies from University of California-Los Angeles.

She has had the pleasure of presenting her writing and research on French literature, contemporary art, postcolonial literatures and pedagogy at conferences and universities throughout the United States and Europe. Her recent articles and essays have appeared in The Journal of African Literature and Culture, The Journal of Pan African Studies, Migrations and Identities (Liverpool University Press), and in myriad anthologies and reference volumes published through Pencraft International Press, Diversion Press, Greenwood Press, M.E. Sharpe, Wiley-Blackwell, and ABC-CLIO.

Jen’s current projects include editing an anthology she conceptualized entitled (In)Scribing Gender: International Female Writers and The Creative Process (forthcoming, Diversion Press), serving on the editorial board of The Journal of African Literature and Culture, writing literary and arts reviews for Global Woman Magazine, contributing travel-related articles to EuropeUpClose, freelance writing for The Kennedy Center, and dreaming up more pieces for Border Hopping.

Jen is the owner of a freelance writing, editing and translation company, Lucidité Writing, LLC. When she’s not galavanting around the world collecting literary and journalistic fodder, Jen writes daily from her home in Minneapolis, Minnesota (USA).
