Profile

I am a specialist of early modern French culture, literature and history. I hold a PhD in History from the Ecoles des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris (2009), and a PhD in French from ELTE University Budapest (2005), as well as an MA in Cultural Anthropology. I have not yet decided whether I am a historian, a literary scholar or maybe a specialist of historical anthropology, and must admit I am happy to live in uncertainty on this point.I have a 'tea and chat' policy - if the light is on, you are welcome to knock at any time, with any questions.

I currently act as departmental First Year Tutor.

Additional Information

I am the co-director of the Aberystwyth-Bangor Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies (IMEMS).

I blog on travel-related matters on http://culturesoftravel.wordpress.com .

Research

  • Travel culture and travel literature in Europe - particularly in early modern France
    • Early modern French intellectual history
    • Writing and reading practices in early modern France
    • History of French journalismMy first monograph, "Philosophies du voyage: visiter l'Angleterre aux 17e-18e siècles" was published in 2016 by the Voltaire Foundation (Oxford). I have published papers, mostly on matters relating to travel in early modern France, in Nottingham French Studies, Compar(a)ison, Seventeenth-Century French Studies and La Lecture littéraire, as well as in a series of conference volumes. Currently I am working on a monograph on educational travel (working title: "From Grand Tour to School Trips: Educational Travel in 18th-Century France), and co-editing a volume with Dr Rachel Willie (Liverpool John Moores) on travel and conflict.
