I specialize in 20th-21st century French and Francophone literature and cinema, focusing on the politics of memory and historical violence. My current research investigates how the legacy of the concentration camp was mobilized in postwar critiques of urbanism, through theoretical and artistic works about architecture, modern life, and the everyday.
