Research Description

My research is informed by intersection of gender and sexuality with Francophone communities primarily in North Africa and the Levant. I am interested in expression of sexual identity and citizenship and how protagonists navigate these issues in relationship to their family and their society.

A second axe of reserach interests is in HIV/AIDS studies in France.  I investigate and chronicle France's literary response to HIV/AIDS from the late 80's until today, primarily how the depiction of masculinity has evolved in this literature over the last twenty-five years.  I am currently the Assistant Editor for Contemporary French Civilization an academic journal dedicated to studying all aspects of culture and civilizaiton in the French and Francophone worlds.
