La poétique de la durée s'efforce d'apaiser l'hier fiévreux, de tramer ce lointain devenir.

I study French literature of the Middle Ages, with special focus on allegory and allegoresis, in particular the thirteenth-century¬†Roman de la Rose¬†and its expansive late medieval reception. My research interests include: hermeneutics and the historicity of (literary) form; (the history of) philology and philological method; medieval textuality, from the material to the virtual; referentiality and citationality; the uses and abuses of wordplay, e.g. paranomasia,¬†annominatio,¬†contrep√®terie¬†(‚Äúfounter-carting‚ÄĚ), etc.
