"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 architectural vocabulary 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."
PhD Student, CY Cergy Paris University (FR), Latin American Literature
"My research aims to study the influence and evolution of Brazilian and European Concrete and Avant-garde poetry movements towards the contemporary intermedia Latin American 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, as well to identify the boundaries that define these works as literary."
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."
Postdoc Researcher, University of Lausanne (CH), French Literature
"I completed my PhD, Poetics of Philosophy: Nietzsche, Wittgenstein and the Art of Language, at Royal Holloway, University of London. My current research lies at the intersection between philosophy of language and poetics. It explores, on the one hand, how to approach poetry from within the framework of ordinary language philosophy; on the other hand, it offers an analysis of ordinary practices at play in contemporary French poetry."
PhD Student, University of Fribourg (CH), German Literature
"In my PhD, I am exploring the phenomenon of code-switching in contemporary German-speaking poetry since 1990 as I am interested in multilingualism in modern literature. My main focus lies on code-switching between German and English, but code-switching between other languages is also of interest to me. More precisely, in my thesis, I will be working on poems by five authors to identify the motives for as well as the forms and functions of code-switching."
