Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

I supervise widely in contemporary European literature, theology, film and thought, as well as English and American literature. I welcome inquiries from students seeking postgraduate supervision in these areas. I have active, ongoing research interests in themes of religion, atheism and the secular in philosophy and literature, in themes of liberation and emancipation across culture, and in philosophical understandings of the human being. I would be delighted to hear from students interested in working on one or more aspects of Michel Serres’s thought. The following is an indicative, non-exhaustive list of writers on whom I have supervised in the past, or would welcome supervising in the future: Samuel Beckett, Maurice Blanchot, Simone de Beauvoir, Claire Denis, Jacques Derrida, Bret Easton Ellis, Jacques Ellul, Robert Guédiguian, Bruno Latour, Catherine Malabou, Marc-Antoine Mathieu, Vladimir Nabokov, Jean-Luc Nancy, Sylvia Plath, Paul Ricoeur, Michel Serres.
