Dr. Aaron Prevots is Associate Professor of French at Southwestern University. He teaches language, literature and culture at all levels, with emphases on contemporary writers and filmmakers and on France's modernization since 1800.

Dr. Prevots received his AM and PhD in French Studies from Brown University. Related study and travel included an MA in Literature from American University, a Diploma in Teaching French as a Foreign Language from the Université Stendhal - Grenoble 3, a semester at the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel, and École Normale Supérieure and Fulbright exchange fellowships. He enjoys moving students toward successful study abroad experiences, as much for summer courses as for semester and year-long immersion.

Dr. Prevots's research interests are in 19th-21st century poetry and culture as well as music, feminisms, life writing and travel writing. In addition to a range of articles on poetry and on the relationship of music to literature and culture, he has published several works in translation by the preeminent French writer Jacques Réda: Return to Calm (Host, 2007), Thirteen Songs of Dark Love (VVV Editions, 2008) and Europes (Host, 2009). He also developed the educational website "French through Songs," with grants from ACS-Mellon, the AATF, Présence Suisse and the Communauté française de Belgique Wallonie-Bruxelles.
