Research Summary

I specialize in areas of Francophone and Postcolonial Literature.  My work is characterized by its interdisciplinary approach and by its eclectically theoretical methodology. I have expertise in twentieth century French and English literatures (M.A. in twentieth century and critical theory and D.Phil. in Postcolonial Studies). Since being appointed at UCL, I have contributed to the development of a number of courses and options, and have widened the provision offered by our French Department with my interdisciplinary engagement with critical and cultural theory, literature, history, and politics, along with the perspective I bring from francophone culture.

 My research is well developed, the output substantial. I co-edited a volume of interdisciplinary essays entitled City Visions (Longman, 1999). Subsequently, I published my single authored monograph, Colonial Myths:  History, Narrative (Manchester University Press, 2000). Drawing on archival research, the book is an important intervention in the fields of postcolonial and Camusian studies; it adumbrates the history and political forces, which shaped pied-noir culture and Algerian literature of Francophone expression. I co-translated Sartre‚Äôs Colonialism and Neocolonialism (Routledge, 2001), and edited The Fanon Reader (Pluto Press, 2006).  Because of its success, Colonialism and Neocolonialism was re-issued in the Routledge Classics (January 2006) with endorsements from Robert C. Young, Homi K. Bhabha and Frederic Jameson. In addition, I co-edited a special volume to mark 10th anniversary of International Journal Francophone Studies in 2006, and a special issue of The Sociological Review, entitled Post-colonial Bourdieu in 2009. Currently, I am completing a single-authored book, Fanon and Postcolonialism: Rethinking the Critical Legacy (Manchester University Press).  The book analyzes the interplay of politics and psychiatry in the work of Fanon and assesses the role he played in the period of decolonization and his legacy in post-independence politics and postcolonial criticism.
