My teaching and research center round societal, feminist and human rights issues in France and the Francophone world but also in Arab countries and Iran. I explore these through history, current events and through literature and film. War is also on my research agenda. I have published on 20th and 21st century French writers, WWII, the Algerian War, the French suburbs, the Iraq war, 9/11, and co-edited Signs of War, From Patrotism to Dissent. Palgrave Macmillan, 2007.
