Martine Antle is Professor of French and Francophone Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She has published widely on vanguard art, theater, and Franco/Arab cultures. In her 2001 book, Cultures du Surréalisme, she presented surrealism as a cultural crossroad characterized by its internationalism and cultural plurality. In 2008, she wrote about new forms of collaboration in works on paper by Ghada Amer and Reza Farkhondeh. Antle is currently working on a book titled Strategies of Resistance in Contemporary Art: The Contributions of Arab Women Artists.
