I am a graduate of University College Cork where I obtained a BA degree in History and French and an MA in French. I pursued further studies at the Université de Lille, where I successfully completed a Diplôme d'Études Approfondies en analyses des phénomènes interculturels (Masters in Advanced Studies in Intercultural Phenomena). In 2001, I obtained a PhD in French from the University of London where I worked under the supervision of Prof. Michael Sheringham at Royal Holloway, University of London.

Since then the primary focus of my research has been on modern and contemporary cultural production in the French-speaking world. My research examines aesthetic form (mainly literary), its context and mode of construction and its destabilization. My monograph, Pierre Michon: The Afterlife of Names (2007), examines the place of canonical writers (such as Arthur Rimbaud) and avant-garde French thinkers (such as Roland Barthes) in the work of the contemporary French writer Pierre Michon. In 2011, I completed two co-edited volumes: Mediterranean Travels: Self and Other from the Ancient World to Contemporary Society (with Noreen Humble and Silvia Ross) and Postcolonial Poetics: Genre and Form (with Jane Hiddleston). In the same year I was appointed General Editor of the Irish Journal of French Studies. I am a member of the Editorial Boards of Contemporary French and Francophone Studies and Modern Languages Open. I was awarded a Government of Ireland Senior Research Fellowship for the project ‘Algeria: Nation and Transnationalism 1988-2010’ by the Irish Research Council for Humanities and Social Sciences (now the Irish Research Council).

I am a member of the Society for Francophone Postcolonial Studies. I was elected to the Executive Committee in 2004 as PRO and was re-elected in 2007. I have also served on the Executive Committee of Association des Études Françaises et Francophone d’Irlande (ADEFFI) from 2003 to 2006 and from 2011 to 2014. I am a Director of the Centre for Studies in Memory and Literature (University of Iceland). Between March of 2009 and 2014 I served as a member of a UNESCO Consultative Group and Sponsoring Committee for the project, 'Rabindranath Tagore, Pablo Neruda and Aimé Césaire: towards a reconciled universalism'.  

I teach a range of modules relating to postcolonial studies: the relationship between France and Algeria, Francophone diasporas, travel writing and the Mediterranean, as well as contemporary autobiographical forms. I offer supervision to postgraduate students wishing to work on issues of identity regarding contemporary cultural production in French or Francophone postcolonial studies.

Research Interests

Poetic form and colonial contexts

The primary focus of my research is on poetic form, its construction and its destabilization. By 'form' I mean a type or category of literary work and, in this sense, it is synonymous with genre. My work

concentrates on a number of particular genres - the novel, the autobiography, the biography, the essay - and on how elements of each can be incorporated into a single text in a way that can unsettle conventional and ideological commonplaces about genre. I examine modern and contemporary prose written in France and in former French colonies. I have published in leading peer-reviewed international journals, including Paragraph

, French Forum, Romance Studies, Francophone Postcolonial Studies, Expressions Maghrébines


My analysis of genre in the work of the contemporary French writer Pierre Michon, has led to a monograph and a number of chapters in edited collections. The main focus of my research in this area has been to delineate the ways in which Michon incorporates ideas of genre developed by the French avant-garde of the 1960s and 1970s. The book's reception in France has been positive and resulted in an invitation to present at the international colloquium on Pierre Michon held in Cérisy in 2009. The interdisciplinary nature of my research, and its contribution to literary theory, is reflected in the publication of a co-edited collection Formless: Ways in an out of Form (with my colleague Paul Hegarty).  My work on genre has led to Postcolonial Poetics: Form and Genre, a collection of essays co-edited with Jane Hiddleston and published by Liverpool University Press in 2011.

 

Within the context of postcolonial studies my article published in French Forum (2004) on genre and on pragmatic approaches to theories of genre led to two commissioned pieces for publications that will serve as key reference points for students of postcolonial studies namely, A Historical Companion to Postcolonial Literatures: Continental Europe and its Empires

(2008) and Postcolonial Thought in the Francophone World (2009). In addition my work has appeared in international journals devoted to colonialism and poetics. My article, 'Images of Algeria', which appeared in a special issue of

Expressions Maghrébines led to an invitation to address a conference on cinematic forms of cultural memory held in Sétif, Algeria. Similarly, my article on Edouard Glissant's poetics of opacity was accepted for a special issue of Romance Studies entitled `The Literary Territories of Postcolonialism' and led to an invitation to present at the Sorbonne on the topic of politics and postcolonialism in 2008.  Extending the analysis of postcolonial critique, I have recently co-edited a collection of essays on Travel Writing in the Mediteranean (Oxford, Legenda, 2011) with Noreen Humble and Silvia Ross. I have been asked to act as referee for journals such Modern and Contemporary France, French Studies and Studies in Travel Writing.
