Biographical details

As a specialist in twentieth-century French theatre, contemporary writing, photography and painting, Martine Antle has published extensively on race and gender in 20th and 21st- century French and Francophone literature. Her scholarship spans the political, social, and cultural revolutions that shaped modernity from the turn of the twentieth century to the present. In her last book on Surrealism (Cultures du Surréalisme, Acoria, Paris) she staged surrealism as a cultural crossroads characterised by its internationalism and cultural plurality.

In response to the shifts that have occurred in the Humanities she published two volumes on the status of French Studies: the first one situates French Studies in relation to Cultural Studies (Perspectives in French Studies at the Turn of the Millennium); the second posits the status of gender studies in the realm of French Studies (The Rhetoric of the Other: Lesbian and Gay Strategies of Resistance in French and Francophone Contexts (co-authored).

Her current research evolves out of her work on surrealism and the ways in which vanguard movements initiated an unprecedented dialogue on cultural diversity and were the first to map a global art scene. As a comparatist and europeanist, she is now working on east-west dialogues, women’s modes of resistance in Franco/Arab art, veiling and unveiling practices in Franco/Arab Art, sexual identities in contemporary transnational art and film of the Franco/Asian,Franco/Arab and Middle Eastern diasporas.

Martine Antle has a proven record of developing interdisciplinary curricular and international programs.
