Dr. Hédi Bouraoui, C.M. (1932-) is a poet, novelist, essayist, and the acting writer-in-residence in York University's Department of French Studies. Born in Sfax, Tunisia and educated in the South-West of France, Bouraoui came to the United States in 1958 as a Fulbright Scholar, and received an MA in English and American Literature at Indiana University. Later, he would receive his PhD. in Romance Studies at Cornell University. Bouraoui's first appointment with York University was as the coordinator of French in the former Division of Literatures and Language Training, where he developed the Creaculture program. Bouraoui is an advocate for French-language literature, and is the author of more than twenty books of poetry, a dozen novels, and a number of books of literary criticism.
