Research Summary

My research interests focus on twentieth- and twenty-first-century French writing. Most of my research can be categorized as close reading of poetic texts, strongly underpinned by a theoretical framework. I work on texts which treat philosophical and psychoanalytical questions poetically, often by subverting the conventions of literary genre, and am especially interested in exploring how their treatment of these issues is linked to a questioning of sexual difference. More broadly, I am interested in literature's relationship to its others, including art and mathematics. My current research project is provisionally entitled Fictions of Grief: Mourning and Writing in Modern French Fiction.

Teaching Summary

I teach at all levels, from the First-year 'Reading French Texts' introduction to literature course to a module entitled 'Trauma and Creativity' in the French strand of the MA in Languages, Culture and History.
