    Research Interests

    Dr Claire Moran is a literary specialist and art historian who works on nineteenth and early-twentieth century France and Belgium. Her research focuses on text-image relations, artists' writings and nineteenth-century social and cultural history. Her publications include articles on Impressionist, Symbolist and Expressionist art and literature, as well as scholarly editions of artists' writings, an edited volume on art and theatre in nineteenth-century France and Belgium and a monograph on Performance and Self-Portraiture. More recently, her research has focused on representations of domestic space in French and Belgian modernism. She has supervised a number of students at Masters and PhD level on topics as varied as Performance in 19thc France to Contemporary poetry and urban renewal. She is interested in hearing from potential students who would like to work on interdisciplinary projects (art, literature, architecture, theatre studies).
