Tamara Bentley Caudill (Ph.D., Tulane University) is a specialist in medieval and
early modern French literature, theatre and performance, and visual cultures. Known
to her students as "Madame," Dr. Caudill is interested in language, literature, and
culture as immersive experiences. She brings that focus into the classroom with activities
that engage students in multiple ways, from cooking demonstrations to interactive
murder mysteries; and her efforts were recognized with the 2021 Faculty Excellence
Award in Teaching.
She is the President of the International Marie de France Society and Assistant Editor of its journal, Le Cygne.
