Doris Kadish’s “A Young Communist in Love” marks her entry into the world of the personal essay, which she has been practicing since retiring from the University of Georgia as Distinguished Research Professor Emerita in 2011. A veteran of forty years of teaching French and women’s studies, first at Kent State University and then at UGA, she served variously as head or director of Romance Languages, Women’s Studies, and the Latin American Studies Institute. She is the author of numerous monographs, edited books, and translations, most recently Fathers, Daughters, and Slaves (Liverpool University Press, 2012, 2014) and the forthcoming co-edited anthology Poetry of Haitian Independence (Yale University Press). Since 1997 she has maintained a research website (slavery.uga.edu) devoted to providing access to primary texts related to slavery in the French-speaking world.
