Research Interests

Women in Literature, especially 19th-century women novelists; American literature; French literature; Maghreb studies

Current Research Projects

Book Project: Henry James and the Ladies: Female Imagination in James’s Fiction

Description: 
I focus on James’s construction of female consciousness and female creativity, which involves also looking at the influence of women writers on him, and in turn his influence on them.

Book Project: Ulysses Unchained: Wander-lust in the Works of Hédi Bouraoui

Description: 
I examine his most recent work, including the trilogy on the Mediterranean islands, with its reinvention of classical mythology, tied to the theme of the mythic journey and the concomitant reinvention of language. I am also continuing to work on translations (French into English) of Hédi Bouraoui’s novels and poetry. I am starting translation of his recent novel, Cap Nord (Ottawa: Vermillon, 2008), which was short listed for the 2009 Prix des Lecteurs Radio-Canada, and for the 2009 Trillium Award.
