Lecturer in French Studies, Australian National University

I am a Lecturer in French at the Australian National University, specialising in contemporary cinema, museum and cultural studies. My first book Decentring France: Multilingualism and Power in Contemporary French Cinema was published with Manchester University Press in 2017 and explores the rise of multilingualism in contemporary French film, teasing out the links between language, identity, violence and social power. My research has also been published in Contemporary French Civilization, the Australian Journal of French Studies, Francosphères, Linguistica Antverpiensia, French Cultural Studies and numerous edited volumes, and I run Les Musées de Paris, a blog which explores the lesser-known museums of Paris. I am currently working on the contracted book Jacques Audiard, a volume in Manchester UP’s French Film Directors series.
