My research focuses on: comparative literature, with special reference to French and English literatures; colonial and postcolonial writing, especially in the Maghreb and the Caribbean; the 20th-century French novel (in particular Camus and Céline); 19th and 20th-century francophone writing in Algeria.
Current project: a study of the links between literature and imperialism in the Algerian novel of the late 19th – early 20th-centuries.
