Research overview

I conduct and supervise research on 20th and 21st century fiction,  both from metropolitan France and from the wider francophone world, where my particular expertise is in the novelists of the Antilles. I have published monographs on the French novelist Michel Tournier and on the Antillean writer Patrick Chamoiseau, and have edited volumes on the wider Caribbean (Caribbean Connections, a special issue of the Journal Forum for Modern Language Studies), Postcolonial violence and identity in Francophone Africa and the Antilles, and French Presidentialism and the Elections of 1995. I am currently completing a co-edited volume on Narratives of French Modernity: Themes, Forms and Metamorphoses.
