Marie-Chantal Killeen came to LMH in 2004 after a three-year joint lectureship at New College and in the Faculty of Modern Languages.
Dr Killeen's main research interests are in the fields of post-war fiction (including in particular the works of Marguerite Duras), autobiography and literary theory. She is the author of Essai sur l’indicible: Jabès, Duras, Blanchot (Presses universitaires de Vincennes, 2004) and En souffrance d'un corps: Essais sur la voix désincarnée (Editions Nota Bene, 2013), which focuses on the disembodied voice in French novels, films and theory since 1980. She is currently working on 20th- and 21st-century robinsonnades, a literary genre inspired by the Defoe novel Robinson Crusoe that it aims to challenge and reinvent.
