Biographical details

The main focus of my research is nineteenth and twentieth century literature. I have worked on popular beliefs and medical discourses on the body in French literature and culture; on “autofiction” and Aids Literature (Hervé Guibert); on the representation of the artist from the nineteenth century to the present; on Comparative Literature in particular on the history of popular genres and Romanticism in Europe. I have published two books : La création mythique à l'époque du Symbolisme (1994), Le corps de l'artiste (2001).

I have recently completed a study on the impact of creative writing classes in France and I am currently working on a project on writing and creativity.

My teaching includes Romanticism, French Popular Culture and Popular Genres and a seminar on the relationships between writers and visual artists in French contemporary fiction and art ('Words, Images and Traces').
