Social media is booming right now with tourist pictures from the past of Notre Dame Cathedral.
The historic structure marks the center of Paris. And those fortunate enough to go to France typically want that picture standing in front of the cathedral.
The fire is being called an accident.
Hamilton College professor of French Cheryl Morgan sat down with Kristen Copeland and talks about what the cathedral is famous for.
Morgan is a specialist in 19th-century literature with particular interest in French women writers, literary humor and urban literature. She has contributed articles about Delphine Gay de Girardin to Symposium, Romantisme and Modernity and the Mass Press in Nineteenth-Century France. Morgan wrote an article on Stendahl's "Le Rouge et le noir" for the MLA Approaches to Teaching World Literature, among other scholarly work. Morgan is working on a cultural critical biography of Gay de Girardin and editing a collection of articles devoted to French women's humor post-1789. She earned her doctorate from Columbia University.
