Research and Teaching

Lorna Milne's research focuses on the 20th and 21st centuries in France and the wider francophone world. She has published on metropolitan novelists including Michel Tournier and Marie Nimier, and Antillean writers Patrick Chamoiseau and Gisèle Pineau. Her current project, with funding from the British Academy, is a book on the Antillean novel and the 'malédiction du nègre'. Prof. Milne has also worked on political discourse in the Fifth Republic, and organized the public lecture series Understanding Sarkozy's France, with support from the Russell Trust and Institut Français d'Ecosse. She teaches specialist modules on contemporary women writers, postcolonial literature and identity, the twentieth century novel and Antillean literature from Césaire to the present. Prof Milne is currently seconded to the Office of the Principal as Vice-Principal (Proctor), but she continues to welcome professional and research enquiries in her role as Professor of French.
