I teach early modern French literature (seventeenth and eighteenth centuries) to second and fourth year students at Queen’s, as well as translation into English for all year groups, and the first year literature courses.
Dr Jessica Stacey
College Career Development Fellow in French
I attended my local comprehensive school in North East Derbyshire, and in 2005 went to King’s College London to study French and Philosophy. I remained in the KCL French Department for my MA and PhD, with a year in between at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon. After two years working in a support role at the Service User Research Enterprise (part of the Institute of Psychiatry), I took up my position at Queen’s in 2017. My work focuses on eighteenth-century conceptions of Time and Civilisation, with a particular interest in how writers accounted for (and instrumentalised representations of) catastrophes. I teach French Literature of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, as well as translation into English.
