Past and current teaching
I have taught a wide range of French and Francophone history and literature, as well as Comparative literature, film, French language, intellectual history, and critical theory at the Universities of Liverpool, St Andrews, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Duisburg-Essen in Germany.
At Liverpool, I am currently teaching Critical Animal Studies on the postgraduate module 'Health and Environmental Humanities' (HLAC702) with a specific focus on capitalism, gender, (animal) labour, and the animal industrial complex. I also teach several classes on the politics of meat in France and its intersections with race and racism, gender, and sexuality for the second-year module 'Manger! Food and French Culture' (FREN230), as well as several classes on Francophone Europe (especially Belgium and Switzerland) and la Francophonie for the first-year module 'Introduction to the Francosphère' (FREN125).
Since 2016, I have been an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (now Advance HE) and I am strongly committed to critical, i.e. anti-racist, decolonial, and feminist, pedagogies. In 2021, Sarah King (Russian department, University of St Andrews) and I organised a workshop on alternative assessment methods and developed a website with recordings, resources, and testimonies.
