Dr. Gorica Lalic joined the MBS World Languages Department in 2011 as a teacher of French and Latin.

Earlier in her career, Dr. Lalic worked at the university level, serving as a Lecturer in French Language and Literature at both Montclair State University and Caldwell College. Prior to this experience, she held a Provost Fellowship at the Graduate Center, The City University of New York (CUNY).

At MBS, Dr. Lalic teaches French and serves as an advisor to the French Club. She started an Exchange Program with a private school in Nantes, France to provide additional educational opportunities for MBS students beyond her classroom.

Dr. Lalic specializes in 19th Century French literature and is also an art historian. Currently, the main focus of her research is the artist Henri-Gabriel Ibels, one of the founders of the Nabis group. She is working with an international group of academic researchers, curators and art historians on illuminating the work of The Nabis as “artistes engagés” (socially and politically engaged artists). In addition, Dr. Lalic sits on the Advisory Council of NECTFL (North East Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages).

As a high school teacher, Dr. Lalic finds teaching to be wonderfully challenging; every day is full of rich interaction with students. She supports an intellectually driven, broad approach to teaching language and culture that highlights deep cultural knowledge as well as linguistic competence.

When she's not teaching at MBS, Dr. Lalic teaches French language and translation at Montclair State University.
