Research overview

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

Before teaching French language, modern literature and culture, and translation at Lancaster, I lectured on French critical thought at Vassar College and Wesleyan University in Paris (2008-10), taught comparative literature as well as French avant-garde theatre and film as Visiting Assistant Professor at Wesleyan University in the US (2010-11), and 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 French Genealogy of The Beat Generation: Burroughs, Ginsberg and Kerouac’s Appropriations of Modern Literature, from Rimbaud to Michaux (Bloomsbury, 2017).

I am currently editing two journal special issues: "French and Beat Literatures: A History of Mutual Appropriation, Reception, and Translation" for L'Esprit Créateur (vol. 58, no. 4, 2018) and "Literary Back-Translations" for Translation and Literature (vol. 29, no. 3, 2020).

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