RESEARCH INTERESTS:

My first book, _Le Corps mondialise': Marie Redonnet, Maryse Conde, Assia Djebar_ (Paris: L'Harmattan, 2007) deals with the impact of the globalization of the media on the female body in Francophone literatures from France, the Caribbean, and the Maghreb. (Book and e-book available at link provided below + fnac.com + amazon.fr) My second research project analyzes diverse case studies in the Francophone world that redefine Francophone Postcolonial theory. Issues covered include: 1/ Accident and postcolonial subjectivity in Maryse Conde's detective fiction, 2/ Occidentalism in Marjane Satrapi's graphic memoir _Persepolis_, 3/ The veil affair in Quebec, etc. More to come!
