I am keen to work with students and colleagues on topics related to the French language, as well as French, Francophone, and Comparative Literature.
The research I engage in is in Comparative Literature, Cultural Studies and European languages, primarily in French, English, Italian, and Spanish, and spanning the nineteenth to the twenty-first century: from Tristan Corbière and Baudelaire, to Joyce, Proust, and Pavese, to name a few. I am particularly intrigued by the interdisciplinary entanglements at play within works of poetry and prose, namely that of intermediality and the relationship between musical form and text, such as the appropriation of fugue in literature.Recurring topics and disciplines in my research include modernist subjectivity, hospitality and alterity; icons and iconoclasm; as well as Francophone literature and art, including indigenous art and pedagogies (in Canada and the Pacific) as well as Translation Studies.
