Research overview

I completed my PhD thesis on Antonin Artaud and Jean Genet at the University of Montreal and the Université Paris Diderot - Paris VII.

Before teaching at Lancaster, I have lectured French Critical Thought at Vassar College and Wesleyan University in Paris (2008-10), as well as Modern Comparative Literature, French Language, Avant-Garde Theatre and Film at Wesleyan University in the US (2010-11), and I have been Postdoctoral Fellow in the Research Institute for the Humanities at Keele University in the UK (2012-14).

I have published several articles and book chapters on Apollinaire, Artaud, Céline and Genet, and am the author of the monograph The French Genealogy of The Beat Generation: Burroughs, Ginsberg and Kerouac’s Appropriations of Modern Literature, from Rimbaud to Michaux (London: Bloomsbury, 2017, 264 p.)

I am currently editing a collection of essays for the bilingual journal L'Esprit Créateur published by Johns Hopkins, "French and Beat Literatures: A History of Mutual Appropriation, Reception and Translation" (scheduled Winter 2018).

I am also working on a new research project at the intersection of Comparative Literature, Translation Studies and Medical Humanities.
