Her research and teaching interests include the relationships between aesthetics and politics; contemporary literature and film; critical and literary theory; spatial politics in the postcolonial, postindustrial and global contexts; history and theory of social movements; literary creation and new media. She is currently working on two projects: a book on precarity in literary and cinematic figurations of the banlieues (1950s onward) and a study of polyphony in post-1990s French literature.
