Responsibilities

I teach Renaissance French literature (16th-century prose and poetic authors) as well as 16th to 20th century poetry and poetics.   I am also the Senior Tutor within the  Department of Modern Languages and European Studies.

Areas of Interest

 

My research interests include comparative study of Renaissance lyric poetry (French, Italian and neo-Latin), intertextuality, Rome in Renaissance writing, the writing of exile and displacement in the Renaissance, Renaissance cento-writing and censorship, the subversive and coded aspects of Rimbaud's French and Latin writing. In connection with these interests I have published numerous articles in edited volumes and learned journals, and have organised or co-organised several international conferences. Current projects include an edition (in collaboration with other scholars) of the French and Latin works of Du Bellay (for Champion, Paris), an edition of the extensive French, Latin and Greek annotations by Henri Estienne of the French poetry of Du Bellay, and a major monograph: The Mosaic of Words: the Cento as a genre and as a concept in Early Modern Europe.
