I studied Anglophone (especially US) and Hispanic cultures and literatures at the University of Liège (Belgium) and received my master’s degrees in 2016 (philology) and 2017 (didactics). Currently a lecturer in English at the University of Liège (“Institut Supérieur des Langues Vivantes”) and PhD student-researcher in the ULiège-based research centre “Interdisciplinary Centre for Applied Poetics” (http://labos.ulg.ac.be/cipa/), my fields of interests are US literature and culture, ecocriticism and the aesthetics of the sublime.
