Clémence Boulouque

Clémence’s topic is Audrey Hepburn and the Mystery of Grace.

A graduate from the Paris Institute of Political Studies and the ESSEC Business School, Boulouque spent some time in a recruiting firm before moving to New York City for the first time, where she won a Fulbright scholarship and studied for a master’s degree in international relations at the School of International and Public Affairs of Columbia University (2001–2002).

After returning to France, Boulouque devoted herself to writing, journalism, and literary criticism from 2002 to 2007. In 2003, she wrote her first novel, Mort d’un silence, in which she tells the long ordeal that she and her family lived when her father committed suicide. The book was awarded with the Prix Fénéon in the same year.  She wrote in particular for the French magazines Le Figaro littéraire, Transfuge, and Lire. She regularly intervened as a chronicler in the program Tout arrive [fr] by Arnaud Laporte on France Culture. She was the producer of the series of programs such as À voix nue with Toni Morrison or Amos Oz, as well as a summer series about Marguerite Yourcenar. In 2005, William Karel directed the film adaptation of her first novel, titled La Fille du juge.

Boulouque returned to the United States in 2008 and was awarded a Ph.D. in Jewish Studies and History from New York University in 2014. Afterwards, Boulouque completed her postdoctoral training at the Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies of the University of Pennsylvania, where she joined the New Perspectives on the Origins, Context and Diffusion of the Academic Study of Judaism fellowship (2014–2015). She currently teaches as the Carl and Bernice Witten Associate Professor of Jewish and Israel Studies in the Department of Religion at Columbia. Her courses of instruction include religion and the movies as well as Masterpieces of Western Literature and Philosophy.
