Research

Research Overview

My research interests focus on contemporary French and Francophone cultures and societies. I am particularly interested in public discourses about postcolonial migration, secularism and Islam as well as decolonial and intersectional social movements. I would be keen to supervise postgraduate students in any of these areas.

Diaspora as Social and Cultural practice: a Study of Transnational Networks across Europe and Africa 

(with Professor Ulrike H. Meinhof, University of Southampton

Awarded by: AHRC programme 'Diaspora, Migration and Identity'
Duration: 1st November 2006-2010
Summary: This project focused on the ways in which (post-)migrant cultural practitioners, performers, and musicians originating from North-Africa and Madagascar are able to use multiple translocal and transnational networks across African, European and wider global spaces. It suggests that artists who create or enter such networks make use of, but go far beyond the traditional 'bi-focal', ethnically and spatially defined communities that link originating and sending countries, as studied in much Diaspora research.  Our research marks a key development in the empirical study of networks, by investigating links between migrant cultural practitioners which develop outside of established cultural/historical ties. http://www.tnmundi.soton.ac.uk
