A graduate of the Sorbonne Nouvelle (LèsL) and of the University of Cambridge (PhD), and a former Junior Research Fellow at Christ’s College Cambridge, Marion joined the French Section in 1998. She has been Associate Professor in the Comparative Literature Department at the Université François Rabelais, Tours, and holds an Habilitation à diriger les recherches of the same institution. In 2005, she was awarded a Leverhulme Research Fellowship to work on a project on the influence of the Decadent movement on Marcel Proust.
She is a member of the international Proust research group at the Institut des Textes et Manuscrits Modernes/ Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris, and the British Correspondent for the Revue d’histoire littéraire de la France and for the Centre de recherches proustiennes (Sorbonne Nouvelle- Paris III). She is also a member of the editorial board of French Studies, of the advisory board for the monograph series Recherches proustiennes (Paris: Champion) and of the Academic Council for the Cultural Studies in Literary Interzones Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate.
Marion’s main research interests lie in the interface between literature and other media, in particular the problem of literary adaptation to the screen and the stage, in European cinema as well as in Decadence and the fin-de-siècle. She has published extensively on Marcel Proust as well as on other major figures of French literature and culture from Flaubert to Jean-Luc Godard. Her publications include Chantal Akerman (MUP, 2010), Proust dans la décadence (Champion, 2008), Proust at the Movies (Ashgate, 2005, co-authored with Martine Beugnet) and Processes of Literary Creation: Flaubert and Proust (Legenda, 1998). She has co-edited a collection of essays on genetic criticism, La Création en acte: devenir de la critique génétique (Rodopi, 2007) and a collection of essays on Marcel Proust and Modernity, Au seuil de la modernité: Proust, Literature and the Arts. Essays in Memory of Richard Bales (Oxford: Peter Lang, 2011), xiv + 324pp.
Having long experience in MSc and PhD supervision, Marion particularly welcomes postgraduate applications relating to her research interests in Proust, the European fin de siècle, Chantal Akerman and adaptation.
