Iris Murdoch



I am running my Ph.D thesis at Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University, under the joint supervision of Prof. Sandra Laugier and Prof. Isabelle Alfandary, which is titled: “For a new ethics of attention to language. From the work of the British novelist and philosopher Iris Murdoch (1919-1999)”. 

My research is part of the continuity, renewal and improvement of Franco-British studies on Iris Murdoch to date, in a common literary, philosophical, and ethical movement. My thesis intends to propound a new ethics of attention to language as a singular moral project, which Iris Murdoch intuited in her first writings, based on the one hand on a very specific idea of what it is to be attentive to language and on the other hand on the new form of attention to ordinary life defined by literature, as an authentic experience which change moral thought and enrich our different forms of life.

In Fall 2022, I have been the recipient of two British fellowships: the Barbara Stevens Heusel Research Fund for Early-Career Scholars awarded by the Iris Murdoch Society, and the “Monthly Scholarship” awarded by the Maison Française of Oxford (I have been the February 2023 Fellow). 

In addition to my doctoral dissertation, I have worked for two French publishing houses, Esprit magazine and CNRS Éditions, as I am very passionate about editing.
