Research interests

Jessica Stacey has been in the King's College London French Department since 2005 (except for two year-long jaunts to La Sorbonne and the ENS Lyon), where she is now a PhD candidate working on the literature and philosophy of the decades preceding the French Revolution. She is currently in the third year of a thesis entitled ‘Catastrophe and the Anachronic: the côté sombre of pre-Revolutionary France’, which examines the manner in which events figured as catastrophic upset linear, chronological understandings of time and periodisation. She has a supplementary interest in medieval literature, particularly the manner in which concepts from this crucial period in European history persist in disguised form throughout later centuries, to the present day.
