Teaching assistant at the French department of the University of
Geneva, I am writing a thesis on the ambiguous relationship between
libertines and natural magic (1600-1650). More generally, I am
interested in the interactions between literature and knowledge
(especially natural philosophy) in the 16th and 17th centuries. I
am also studying polemical writing strategies, and mainly erudite
I therefore have a predilection for epistemological approaches to fictional – as well as philosophical and scientific – works, favoring a close reading of the texts.
