Dr Claire Lozier


I hold a double PhD in French Literature from the University of Kent and the Université Paris 3 Sorbonne Nouvelle. Before coming to Leeds, I worked as an Assistant Lecturer in French and Comparative Literature at the University of Kent (2006-2009), as an 'Agrégée' teacher in Paris (2009-2010), as an Associate Lecturer in French and Comparative Literature at the University of Kent (2010), and subsequently as a Teaching Fellow in French Literature and Cinema at the University of Leicester (2011). I joined French at Leeds as a Teaching Fellow in 2011 and have been working since 2012 as a Lecturer in French Studies and World Cinemas. Since 2018, I am also an Associate Researcher at the ‘Centre Prospéro: Image, Langage, Connaissance’ at the University Saint-Louis Brussels.

Research interests

My research interests are in French cinema, art, literature, literary theory, gender theory and, broadly speaking, the connections between aesthetics and ethics.
