I am post-doctoral researcher in the Centre for History of Societies, Sciences and Conflicts at the University of Picardy Jules Verne, associate researcher to the C.N.R.S. Research Centre “Knowledges, Texts, Language” (U.M.R. 8163, Lille, France) and to the Centre for Research and Cultural-Communautary Activities (Créacc-Diversités) in Montréal, Québec.
In the fields of epistemology, history of sciences and historical anthropoly (cultural history), my researches focus on the discourses of mental medicine and human sciences about sexuality and deviances from the 18th century to present. Since 2005, I particularly work on the history of the concept of “sexual perversion” from the Enlightenment to the 21st century. My general aim is the analyse of norms constructed by medical, psychological and human sciences (their invention, diffusions, individual and social receptions), through the historical study of the acts and experiences categorised as “deviations” (sexual perversion, violence, madness, mental disorders, etc.).
You will find my CV, a selection of my publications, my PhD dissertation (in French). Others documents are forthcoming (soon!). You can also visit my personal webpage in French.
