Title : Associate Professor



Research Themes :

  • Cinema, TV series and visual arts
  • Literature and film, intermediality
  • Audiovisual aesthetics

Recherches en cours :

My research currently focuses on the aesthetic evolutions of American TV series, more particularly one-hour dramas, since 1999. I consider what has often been called "television’s third golden age", or "complex television" (J. Mittell) to explore aesthetic choices of TV series, which I connect with the recent mutations in modes of production and reception, as well as with technological evolutions. To what extent have mise-en-scène, framing, camerawork, sound treatment or editing, evolved in the past few years, and how should we consider the process of convergence (or divergence) with cinema and other art forms ?

My projects focus more specifically on the following series : The Sopranos, The Wire, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Treme, Masters of Sex, The Handmaid’s Tale, The Good Wife, The Night Of.
