I am a postdoctoral researcher of the European Union H2020 Project DETECt (Detecting Transcultural Identity in European Popular Crime Narratives) and a Lecturer at the Institut d’études politiques de Paris, and the École supérieure d'art du Nord-Pas-de-Calais.


I received my Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from the University of California Santa Barbara. I study a variety of topics in contemporary American and French minority literatures with an emphasis on U.S. Latinx and Franco-Maghrebi cultures.


My research centers on four lines of inquiry: 1-the relation of minority literatures with literary theory and genres (Bildungsroman, crime fiction, historical novel), 2-the representation of place and space in contemporary literature, 3-the application of the concept of Postmigration to the study of literature and visual culture, and 4-how literature and art from Latin America and the Maghreb respond to global migration movements.
