Professional Information

My book Victims of the Book: Reading and Masculinity in Fin-de-Siècle France (forthcoming from University of Toronto Press) shows how, in a cultural context of perceived national decline and contentious educational reforms, the adolescent male reader became a subject of grave social concern in fin-de-siècle France. This project was awarded a research fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

I am a member of the Proust research team (Équipe Proust) at ITEM, the Institute for Modern Texts and Manuscripts, Paris (Institut des textes et manuscrits modernes, CNRS/ENS).

I am Associate Editor of Corr-Proust, the new digital edition of Marcel Proust's correspondence, an international collaborative project bringing together the University of Ilinois, ITEM, and the Université Grenoble Alpes.
