Hello! I'm Nora.

Je suis MCF à la section Anglais du département des langues de l'université Côte d'Azur de Nice. Je suis spécialiste du théâtre anglais des XVIe et XVIIe siècles. Mes champs d’investigation sont la race dans la culture et le théâtre de la première modernité anglaise, aux XVIe et XVIIe siècles, la dialectique de l’identité et de l’altérité, l’injure et l'invective ainsi que les adaptations et appropriations des pièces de W. Shakespeare. Je suis également intéressée par l'approche intersectionnelle qui croise race, genre, classe, sexualité et handicap. J’ai publié mes recherches dans Cahiers Elisabéthains, Arrêt sur Scènes/Scene Focus, Les Cahiers Shakespeare en Devenir, Multicultural Shakespeare: Translation, Appropriation and Performance et L’œil du Spectateur. Je prépare actuellement une monographie Racist Abuse in Early Modern English Drama: From Racist Weapon to Antiracist Shield (The Arden Shakespeare, Bloomsbury).

I am an Associate Professor in Early Modern British Literature and Translation at University Côte d'Azur, Nice (France). I am a specialist of early modern English drama. My research interests include race in early modern English culture and drama, the dialectics of identity and alterity, words of abuse and invective as well as adaptations and appropriations of Shakespeare's plays. I am also interested in the intersectional approach which focuses on intersections of race, gender, class, sexuality and disability. I published my work in Cahiers Elisabéthains, Arrêt sur Scènes/Scene Focus, Les Cahiers Shakespeare en Devenir, Multicultural Shakespeare: Translation, Appropriation and Performance and L’œil du Spectateur. I am currently working on a monograph Racist Abuse in Early Modern English Drama: From Racist Weapon to Antiracist Shield (The Arden Shakespeare, Bloomsbury).
