Welcome

I am an Assistant Professor at Purdue University in French and Comparative Literature. My research explores genre fiction, especially Fantastic fiction and High Fantasy, through the lens of postmodernism and translation theories. I notably published articles in @nalyses, in the Colloque de Cerisy series, and in the Oxford journal Literary Imagination. I have also published a monograph entitled Stephen King as a Postmodern Author at Peter Lang Publishing (2013).

I received my Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from the University of La Sorbonne Nouvelle (Paris, France). In addition to my Ph.D., I hold a Master’s Degree in Teaching French as a Second Language. Before joining Purdue, I taught at the University of La Sorbonne in Paris (France), at Pepperdine University in Lausanne (Switzerland), and at the University of New South Wales in Sydney (Australia).
