Dr. Lagier is very glad to be back in the California State University
system: twelve years ago, he came to CSU Fullerton as an exchange student
from Paris University, and then received a Master of Arts in French at
San Diego State University. He later worked for almost two years as a Linguistic
Attaché at the French Consulate in Miami before resuming his graduate
work at Princeton University where he was awarded a Ph.D in French in 1996
(his dissertation focused on post WW2 French theater). He worked for two
years as a Visiting Assistant Professor at Oberlin College in Ohio. On
a more personal side, he also loves playing sports (soccer, tennis, racquetball),
reading, and of course, theater and cinema.
