Christopher Coski: Brief Bio

I was born in Baltimore, Maryland, educated at Towson University (B.A., Maryland State Teaching Certification) and the University of Maryland (M.A., Ph.D.).  Prior to teaching at Ohio University, I taught at the University of Maryland, Towson University, Frostburg State University, and the Lycée Nicolas Appert just outside of Nantes, France.

I am married to Professor Moretti-Coski, who also teaches French in the Department of Modern Languages at Ohio University.  We have both taught at Ohio University since 2000.

Professionally, my teaching and research interests focus on the literature, culture, and history of ideas in early-modern France. I serve on several departmental, college and university committees each year and advise undergraduate French majors. Since July 2018, I have been chair of the Department of Modern Languages.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing chess. After a long hiatus, I returned to active tournament play in late 2019. I'm currently a USCF class B player with ambitions to make class A.
