Professeure invitée 2023-2024
Anne Reynès-Delobel is Associate Professor in American Literature in the Department of English at Aix-Marseille Université, France. Over time, her interests in modernist and avant-garde culture in the interwar period have moved from single-author or artist studies (Kay Boyle, Claude Cahun, Joseph Cornell) to transatlantic circulations and exchanges. This has involved studying modernist transatlantic periodicals and networks. It has also meant examining the role of mediators and processes of mediation, and their reciprocal impact on 1920-1930 American literature. She has published articles and essays in Journal of Modern Periodical Studies, European Journal of Periodical Studies, Transatlantica, Journal of the Short Story in English, and Image & Narrative. With Mary Ann Caws, she co-authored Glorieuses Modernistes (2016) a monograph on women modernist in writing and art. Since 2009, she has been the president of the Kay Boyle Society, an author society affiliated with the American Literature Association. In 2021, with Stamatina Dimakopoulou (NKUA), she co-founded Transitive Modernities, an on-going CIVIS transdisciplinary programme that seeks to explore trans-European and transcultural connections and divides across Europe, the Mediterranean, Africa, and the American continent from the 20th to the 21st century.
