Judith Still

Department of French and Francophone Studies

Current research project (Leverhulme funded) Theories and Practices of Hospitality in the Eighteenth Century and the Present Day I am interested in contemporary critical theory, in particular post-structuralism and feminism. In the past I have worked on intertextuality, and also in the field of masculinity studies. At the moment I am working on hospitality (drawing considerably on Derrida's writing in that area - also the work of Luce Irigaray and Helene Cixous). I am interested in feminist analysis of male-authored texts (including Rousseau and Diderot), and have also published on eighteenth-century women writers such as Genlis, Mary Wortley Montagu and Sarah Scott, and am planning to work on Graffigny. My work on hospitality in the Enlightenment will also include work on representations of hospitality and cannibalism in the New World. See link to departmental web page.
