EZRA SIBYL BENISTY

PhD Student, University of Lausanne (CH), English Literature

"My current PhD research echoes my MA dissertation entitled ‘We’ll build in sonnets pretty rooms’: The Sonnet Sequence Genre and the Architecture of John Donne’s ‘Holy Sonnets’. I now take an interdisciplinary approach to explore, mainly in the early modern period, the material vocabulary (e.g. architecture, textiles) and logic used in sixteenth-century English and continental studies of poetics, as well as the metalanguage used in poetic works themselves, in English and other languages."

GABRIELA LAZARO

PhD Student, CY Cergy Paris University (FR), Latin American Literature

"My research focuses on exploring the metamorphosis between avant-garde poetry movements in Latin America, such as Brazilian Concrete Poetry or Mail Art, and electronic poetry. I seek to give a lyrical perspective to this literary corpus, exploring how they rethink the sensible and subjective from these new poetic forms. The Latin American region is changing the poetic landscape, trying to innovate through new technologies, yet bearing testimonies of precariousness and the constant struggle to find new institutional or non-institutional arenas to create platforms for the diffusion of poetry."

PHILIP LINDHOLM

Postdoc Researcher, University of Lausanne (CH), English Literature

"I completed my PhD, entitled Synaesthesia in British Romantic Poetry, in 2018 at the University of Lausanne. My work is located at a mid-way between Romantic science and literature and focuses on the senses and the embodied imagination. My current interdisciplinary research project explores the creative engagement with volcanoes and the emerging Earth sciences in European Romantic poetry in the context of international aesthetic and intellectual crosscurrents."

PhD Student, University of Lausanne (CH), French Literature

"My research project focuses on the multimedia metaphor. Specifically, I turn my attention on language modalities, supports and platforms participating in the configuration of the conceptual and material formatting of the metaphor. To that end, I rearticulate the cognitivist conception of “everyday metaphor” and the pragmatic conception of the “artistic metaphor”, to rethink the metaphor as a multimedia object between poetry and quotidian, textual and non-textual art, art and life."

PHILIP MILLS

Postdoc Researcher, University of Lausanne (CH), French Literature

"I completed my PhD in Philosophy on Nietzsche, Wittgenstein, and poetics at Royal Holloway, University of London. It is now published as a book: A Poetic Philosophy of Language: Nietzsche and Wittgenstein’s Expressivism (London: Bloomsbury, 2022).My work lies at the intersection of philosophy of language, aesthetics, and poetry. My current research explores how to approach poetry from within the framework of ordinary language philosophy (Wittgenstein, Austin, Cavell) and analyses ordinary practices at play in contemporary French poetry."

ADELA SOPHIA SABBAN

PhD Student, University of Fribourg (CH), German Literature

"My research project is concerned with the relationship between poetry and the visual arts, drawing chiefly on the work of German poet and artist Christoph Meckel (1935-2020). I look at the connections between Meckel’s literary and artistic works, especially in those cases where poetry and a drawing form parts of the same piece of artwork."
