Katharine Swarbrick began her research career by writing on Lacanian perspectives on the psychopathology of Jean-Jacques Rousseau about which she is currently completing a monograph. Her exploration into interrelations between psychoanalytic theory and aspects of Enlightenment has extended into the life and works of Jean-François Marmontel and, more recently, Voltaire.
She also works on interdisciplinary topics including the relations between avant-garde and neo-avant-garde productions and the psychoanalytic theories of Freud, Lacan, Zizek. She has recently examined the poetic dialogue between French surrealist Georges Hugnet and Gertrude Stein.
Dr Swarbrick is associate researcher to the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research, London, and official translator to the General Editors of the Cambridge University Press Edition of the Writings of Virginia Woolf.
Postgraduate applications on the relations between psychoanalysis and French literature are welcome.
