"I became involved involved in research because I wanted to graduate with High or Highest Honors. Having found a research project that truly interests me, though, I find it taking on a new dimension. I have become enthralled with my topic and am searching for ways to explore it in other dimensions after completing my undergraduate education."

It is often said that literature is the key to the soul. Following in this logic, I have explored Francophone literature to determine how the identity crONE.UF, brought on by French colonialism, effected children of differing genders differently. Using more than 15 works, I will explore this question about the impacts of colonialism from the point of view of authors who experienced it firsthand in their youth.
