Specialisation20th- and 21st-century French and francophone literature, philosophy and visual culture
Research interestsI work on questions of embodiment, gender, sexuality and affect across different forms of modern French and francophone culture. I have published various articles and co-edited volumes on these topics, as well as the monograph _The Becoming of the Body: Contemporary Women's Writing in French_ (EUP, 2014). I am currently writing a second book on emotional life in the feminine in contemporary French culture.
I teach second- and final-year papers on 20th and 21st century French and francophone literature, thought and culture, as well as the comparative paper, ‘The Body’, which looks at representations of embodiment across European culture. I also teach the first-year introduction to French literature, thought and culture, and French translation.
