The research of our postgraduate students is diverse in subject matter, ranging from gender in French literature to intersections between fine art and the translation of poetry, from poetics and narrative fiction to the Situationist movement.

Recent and current projects are also marked by significant geographical diversity, moving from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Burundi to the Anglo-American reception of French writer and thinker Bataille, and Maghrebi women’s writing.
