French Language and Literature, Åbo Akademi University, Finland
I am a senior university lecturer and researcher in French literature. After defending my doctoral thesis in 2011 I have been teaching and doing research at Department of Romance studies and Classics at Stockholm University between 2012 and 2017. My main fields of interest are French postcolonial studies and the function of literature as a support of collective memory. I am working on a study of French contemporary literature on the Algerian War and the collective memories in its aftermath in present day France. My doctoral thesis, Le Discours beur comme positionnement littéraire (2011), treats the literature of French writers of North African immigrant descent.
