My research and teaching focus on premodern literature and culture in French and their interplay with contemporary thought; twentieth-century French cultural history; writing through gender.
An Almanach of Timely Fictions, the book I'm currently completing, spans literature and graphic arts. Published works include: Migrants shaping Europe, past and present: Multilingual literatures, arts, and cultures, ed. with Vincent Joos (Manchester, 2022); James Joyce Remembered, edition 2022 (C.P. Curran), ed. with Alice Ryan (UCD, 2022); Un Moyen Âge républicain: les paradoxes du théâtre en temps de guerre (Presses Paris-Sorbonne, 2014) Medieval Roles for Modern Times (Penn State 2010); The Master and Minerva (California 1995); European Medieval Studies Under Fire, 1919-1945, an edited collection (JMEMS, Duke. 1995).
Students interested in researching premodern fiction in French are particularly welcome.
