Research Interests

Emmanuelle Lacore-Martin's main research interests lie in French Renaissance literature, with a special interest in Rabelais and ancient Greek and Latin sources.

Her current research focuses on the links between early modern literature and medicine, with a particular interest in the impact of anatomical discoveries on the representation of the body and soul relationship in literary and philosophical texts of the period.

Other research interests include literary theory and contemporary French literature, in particular the writings of Annie Ernaux.

Teaching

  • Renaissance poetry
  • Love and Melancholy in early modern France (French 4 Option)
  • French Language and the further development of e-learning

Dr Lacore-Martin would be very keen to supervise research students in any aspect of French Renaissance literature, but particularly on research projects looking at the intersection between literature and medicine in the early modern period.
