BiographyI'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 Cité 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 Cité 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.
I love traveling, going to the movies, the theater, the opera.
