This is “All About Yves.” (Pronounced the same way, but definitely NOT the Bette Davis Movie.)
Greetings! My name is Yves Cloarec. I am an Adjunct in the European Languages and Literatures Department, as well as the English Department. For the “Europeans,” I teach a “Writing about Western Civilization” course; I also sometimes teach French Language courses. In the English Department, I’ve taught various versions of 110, 130, 161, 162 etc…all with an emphasis on Writing—which seems appropriate, as I received an MFA in Literary Translation and Creative Writing in May 2014 and I was lucky enough to have my first book (a translation) published right around that time as well. Before that, I was a self-employed computer consultant for 20 years; and before that is much too far away to really talk about. Speaking of far-away, I will tell you I was born in the French West Indies and educated in French schools, but I went to college here in NYC and received my Bachelor’s when Jimmy Carter was in the White House. And that is way many more secrets than I hoped to reveal.
