MA, MSt, PhD
I graduated from Sciences Po Paris (France) in 2006, before moving to Oxford for an MSt in European Literatures.
I completed my thesis in French Studies at King’s College London, which formed the basis of my first book, Postcolonial Criticism and Representations of African Dictatorship: The Aesthetics of Tyranny (Legenda, 2014). In 2012, I was appointed to the Joanna Randall McIver Junior Research Fellowship at Somerville College, Oxford, followed by a lectureship at Royal Holloway, University of London, in 2013.
In 2015, I moved to a position as Assistant Professor in the Department of French Literature, Thought, and Culture at New York University.
In 2021, I was appointed to the position of Kelleher Fellow in French and Associate Professor of Post-Colonial Francophone Literatures and Culture at Oriel College, Oxford.
