Research supervision

I am currently first supervisor to Giada Alessandroni, who is preparing a PhD on the subject of representations of female homosociality (friendship, solidarity, and rivalry between women) in French Belle époque popular culture (1880-1914).

I would be very interested to hear from anybody considering research in any area of French nineteenth-century literature, but would also be keen to hear about any twentieth-century French studies project that engages substantially with the question of empathy or Theory of Mind, with problems of interpretation, or with ideas about gender.
