Jill Jarvis is Assistant Professor in the Department of French and a member of the councils on African Studies and Middle East Studies at Yale. Her book Decolonizing Memory: Algeria & the Politics of Testimony was published by Duke University Press in 2021. Her current project, Signs in the Desert : Aesthetic Cartographies of the Sahara, builds a case for how contemporary writers and filmmakers from across the African Sahara transform the reductive ways in which this desert has long been mapped. She is also founding member of the Desert Futures Collective, an interdisciplinary research collaboration.
