I'm a Professor of American Studies and Book History at the University of Paris 13. I'm principal investigator of the three-year Sorbonne Paris CitĂ© project "Writing History from the Margins: the Case of African Americans" (http://hdlm.hypotheses.org/). The book "Writing History from the Margins" could not have been written without the support of Sorbonne Paris CitĂ© and the team of researchers and students who have been working together for the past three years. It's been an exciting experience.
Areas of Research / Professional Expertise
I specialize in African American history, historiography, and book history; I'm also interested (among others) in the circulation of popular literature between the US, France and Britain in the 19th-century.
