Personal profile

Research interests

Siobhán Shilton is Reader in French Studies and the Visual Arts. Her research and teaching interests lie in postcolonial and transnational studies, particularly contemporary art and literature exploring the cultures of France, the Maghreb, sub-Saharan Africa and former Indochina. Her current project is entitled ‘Art and the “Arab Spring”: Aesthetics of Revolution and Resistance’. She was awarded an AHRC Fellowship for a project on transnational history, theory and aesthetics in video, photography, installation and performance art (2012-13). Her most recent book is Transcultural Encounters: Gender and Genre in Franco-Maghrebi Art (Manchester University Press, 2013). She is also co-author (with Charles Forsdick and Feroza Basu) of New Approaches to Twentieth-Century Travel Literature in French: History, Genre, Theory (Peter Lang, 2006).

Siobhán teaches twentieth- and twenty-first-century French literature, visual culture and language. She would especially welcome applications for postgraduate study in the areas outlined above.
