Sonja Stojanovic is an Assistant Professor of French. She specializes in 20th- and 21st-century French literature and culture. Her book manuscript focuses on how spectral figures, as sites of disruption and embodiments of a number of paradoxes, allow us to think disappearance. She is concurrently working on a project which looks at the gendered representation of precarious workers in contemporary fiction.
She has a longstanding interest in contemporary women’s writing and has written articles focusing on questions of maternal grief, representations of motherhood, and narrative strategies in the work of Marie Darrieussecq.
She is an associate member of the Center for the Study of Contemporary Women’s Writing (UK), where she compiles information for the author-page of Lydie Salvayre.
Selected Courses: Writing Disappearance in 20th- and 21st-century French Fiction, The Contemporary French Novel, The French at Work: Precariousness and Unemployment, The Mother in Theory
