Research overview

 My research focuses primarily on modern and contemporary French literature, theory and criticism. In among that, I am particularly interested in writing that performs a new kind of criticism by using a wide range of genres and media to engage with writing about art and literature. I have written and published works on translation, writing technologies, posthumanism and the archive. I have also written several articles on Michel Houellebecq and am the translator, with Tim Mathews, of his poetry collection The Art of Struggle. My new research project, funded by the AHRC/MEITS, is entitled 'Translation as Creative Critical Practice'. It researches the ways in which translation can stimulate creative approaches to the reading and interepretation of texts. I write, publish and translate poetry in both French and English.
