With deep sadness, we announce the passing of Professor Anna Norris from causes subsequent to a recent illness. As a beloved and inspiring teacher, an admired and deeply appreciated colleague, Dr. Norris touched many in the French program, in this department (which she chaired from 2008—2010) and in the College of Arts and Letters. Her polyvalent research  focused largely on the Deportation of French Jews during WWII. She was frequently invited by French Universities to speak on this topic. She was also a Core Faculty member of the Center for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies.
