I enjoy researching on the translation(s) of literary works (20th century mostly) from French to English along with their reception on behalf of a North American audience. The translation (transfer from a cultural system to another) of cultural references (material or immaterial), polemical items is something I like working on. Authors like Houellebecq, Despentes, and other contemporary writers, as well as their biggest influences are the focus of my research.
