Marie-Christine Leps specializes in literary theory and discursive criticism. Her book, Apprehending the Criminal: The Production of Deviance in Nineteenth-Century Discourse (Duke UP, 1992) traces the production and circulation of knowledge about the criminal in criminology, the press, and crime fiction, and shows how the delineation of deviance served to construct cultural norms in England and France. She has published articles on social discourse, narrative realism, intertextuality, and various aspects of the "Information Age," as well as on DeLillo, Foucault, and Agamben. Together with Lesley Higgins she co-authored articles on governmentality, fiction, film and history, and is currently writing a study of subjectivity and governmentality in texts by Woolf, Ondaatje, and Foucault. She is the Director of the Graduate Program in English and is cross-appointed to the Graduate Program in Social and Political Thought.
