I am interested in 19th-century French literature, and more specifically, in French women writers of the 19th and 20th century. Both my research and my teaching are concerned with different approaches such as gender studies, psychoanalysis, and more recently cultural studies. I am working on integrating new contemporary issues into the literary canon.

Current projects and interests

At present, I am at work on different projects that examine the intersection between the personal and the political in nineteenth-century French women writers.
