Elliot Evans

Colleges, School and Institutes


After completing an undergradeuate degree at King's College London in French & Philosophy in 2009. I began a Masters' degree in Women's Studies at the University of Oxford. I wrote my PhD thesis in the Department of French at King's College London, working on the reception and development of queer theory in France and questions of the representation of the body through literature, philosophy and visual art. 

Research interests

My research interests lie in 20th and 21st Century literature, visual art, theory and philosophy, particularly the intersections of feminist, queer and transgender theories. My work has focused on questions of the body, gender and sexuality: my thesis being concerned with the question of how to approach the material body within the context of contemporary French queer works, particularly those by Paul B. Preciado, Monique Wittig and the performance artist ORLAN. I am currently working on the visual representation of HIV/AIDS by artists in France and North America.
