About Renée Riese Hubert
Renée Riese Hubert was one of the most accomplished, productive, and generous scholars and teachers of literature on the UC Irvine campus. Professor Emerita of French and Comparative Literature, she also made significant and lasting contributions to Women’s Studies and the UCI Emeritae/i Association. The daughter of German Jewish parents who were prominent physicians, public intellectuals and activists who worked in the service of liberal causes, Renée Riese was forced to leave Nazi Germany as a young girl and settle with her family in France. She was educated in Paris and found her first vocation there, publishing six volumes of poetry in French that won high acclaim in her elective country and language... She went on to obtain her Ph.D. from Columbia University and then taught for twenty years in comparative literature and French at UC Irvine, where Hubert actively shaped Comparative Literature, Art History, Fine Arts and Women’s Studies. https://www.gf.org/fellows/all-fellows/renee-riese-hubert/
