Bonjour! My name is Lena Taub Robles. I grew up in Puerto Rico and attended the University of Puerto Rico, where I received a B.A. in French. I obtained my Masters and PhD in French literature at University at Buffalo.
When I was in college, I studied abroad in a small medieval town in France called Angers. I also spent two years in Paris, where I taught English at the University of Paris - Denis Diderot. I loved discovering French films and music, getting lost in the city, and eating fromage and croissants!
I’m very excited to join CSUB this year. I will be coordinating the French program and assisting students interested in learning French. I look forward to getting to know many of you!
This event is free and open to the public.

The Poetic Research Bureau presents
The Bakersfield Fan Forum\
Everyone is a fan of something. The concepts of “the fan,” “the amateur” and the “self-published writer” have often been denigrated and ridiculed in popular culture and the media. However, over the past several centuries (at least) the cultural practice of “fandom,” of being a fan, has broadened and diversified, and in the process become more participatory. This series of lectures and readings will investigate the various ways enthusiasms and fandoms are articulated in contemporary poetry and visual art.
