Ph.D. Student

Gwénaël earned his Bachelor’s degree (with high honors) and his Master’s degree (with highest honors) in Comparative Literature at Sorbonne University. Now a PhD student in Comparative Literature at Purdue University and a Lynn Fellowship recipient, he works on French, British and Spanish novels of the seventeenth and eighteenth century with a particular focus on histoires comiques, on baroque, allegorical, satirical novels, and on novels influenced by the picaresque. While he is mainly interested in poetics, rhetoric, philosophy, truth, and modes of thought, he is also curious about history and sociology. He gave his first conference (on John Milton) at the Renaissance Society of America in April 2021, and is currently working on several projects for publication.
