Whilst finishing her PhD at the University of Cambridge, Dr Tribout-Joseph took up a teaching fellowship in French at the University of St Andrews in 2004. She came to the University of Edinburgh in 2005. Her research has focused on 19th to 21st century literature and in particular the modernist period. She has published a monograph on discourse in Proust and Joyce. In 2008 she completed an AHRC-funded project on visual imagery in Proust.

She is currently working on a new project on the individual’s experience of space and more particularly his/her negotiation of urban space. This will lead to a book-length study entitled: Paris in Twentieth-Century French Literature.

She is also looking to develop a new project on visual imagery in Pierre Michon and the biographical intertext of the artist.

In addition to her commitments in French and Francophone Studies, Dr Tribout-Joseph also teaches on the MSc in Comparative and General Literature, contributing to the core theory course as well as offering an option of her own on Modernism.
