Research Summary

My research focuses on the study of public discourse about social suffering, in particular around the configuration of social problems. I have worked on migration, sexuality and nationhood, with a book with Manchester University Press entitled Discourses on LGBT asylum in the UK (2017). The book explores the way the social problem of LGBT asylum is conceived of in relation to questions of nationhood, human rights and forms of neoliberal optimism.

I am currently working on the cultures of deindustrialisation in the Lorraine region in France. It evaluates how, since the steelworker marches of 1979, writers, film-makers and artists have found the changing region of Lorraine a fertile ground for conflicting visions of work, migration, poverty, ruination and memory.

Teaching Summary

I currently teach translation into English (fourth year module), use of French (fourth year module), French oral (fourth year module), gender studies (MA: Gender Representation and Society) as well as sexuality studies (MA: Language Culture and History), and French politics (EISPS).
