Dr Christèle Maizonniaux is a research scholar who brings a dynamic approach to her work at Flinders University as Senior Lecturer in French and co-ordinator of a number of language and cultural courses.

Her extensive international experience, embracing studies and teaching in France, Germany, Austria, West Africa and Australia – where she completed her PhD at the Australian National University (ANU, Canberra) – preceded her appointment at Flinders in 2012 and provided the basis and rationale for her strong philosophical and practical commitment to research-led teaching and teaching-led research.

Christele is an innovator who embraces the heterogeneity of her student groups by taking into account their cultural, linguistic and epistemological backgrounds. She has a particular expertise in contemporary French and francophone Children's literature in Language teaching and Learning and has pubished widely on this topic.

Narratives of migration and expatriation, as realised in travel writing, stories of exile, and diasporic literature, are central in her research interests and practice and threaded where relevant through her teaching. Christele also brings within her compass creative writing, technology-enhanced learning and francophonie.

Her book, published by Université Grenoble-Alpes Editions, has now been published: La littérature de jeunesse en classe de langue. Pour une Pédagogie de la créativité (296 pages). (French children's literature in the language classroom. Towards a pedagogy of creativity). https://livre.fnac.com/a14767602/Christele-Maizonniaux-La-litterature-de-jeunesse-en-classe-de-langue
