Qualified language teacher and Ph.D. candidate in French Studies (comparative literature).
Currently working on Algerian and Egyptian Francophone poetry from the 20th Century in relation to French and German philosophy/literary theories.
I specialise in the complete poetic work of two French-speaking poets of the twentieth century, Andrée Chedid (Franco-Egyptian) and Jeanne Benguigui (Franco-Algerian).
I use French philosophy (Blanchot, Barthes) and German philosophy (Heidegger) as a basis for studying the development and exploitation of the concept of neutrality in poetry. I am supervised by Associate Professor Natalie Edwards and Dr Peter Poiana.
