Curriculum Vitae


I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Philosophy of the University of Liège (Belgium) and a member of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research on Translation and Interpreting (CIRTI). I also sit on the board of the Lewis Carroll Society (UK). My research focuses on the strategies of transfer of realia (culture-bound elements) in the French translations of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, though I am not immune to straying away to pursue my interest in the Interwar reception of Carroll’s works in France as well as his influence on the Surrealists. I am also fascinated by the Victorian era, food studies, children’s books, and the history of publishing and book-binding.
