Maria-Luisa Ruiz

Maria-Luisa Ruiz is a Professor of French at Medgar Evers College of CUNY. Since 2009, she has been especially interested in understanding the notion of archetypes and the role of memory in the construction of identity at the individual and collective levels in works of contemporary Francophone women writers. Following these lines of analysis, she has published papers on Gerty Dambury, Marie Ndiaye and Nina Bouraoui.

She is also a yoga teacher and recently obtained a certificate in “coaching the unconscious”.
