Professor G. DeLeonibus teaches beginning, intermediate, and advanced French language as well as French literature and cinema. His literature courses cover the Middle Ages through the 20th century with the focus on the integration of history, politics, art, and music into the study of literature.

His research interest focuses more precisely on the intersection of literature and politics in fin-de-siècle France. He has received grants and fellowships to support his research and pedagogy from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Oregon Council for the Humanities.
