PhD projects

Russell Cousins' main research interest lies in the work of Emile Zola and screen adaptations. His current project (‘Zola’s soundtracks and aural structures’) is to investigate Zola’s use of sound in the evocation of location and the metaphorical weight given to his creations in the Rougon-Macquart series.

Dr Cousins has supervised theses on Duhamel, Maupassant and French/Hollywood cinema.
