About Chloe Avril

  • Subject: English literature
  • Office: H621

Background

I was born in France and came to Sweden originally as an Erasmus student to do part of my BA from the Université Lumière Lyon II. After completing my MA in Lyon I returned to Sweden and the University of Gothenburg to do a Ph.D. in American Literature. My thesis on the utopian novels of Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935), defended in 2006, was then published by the Edwin Mellen Press in 2008 under the title The Feminist Utopian Novels of Charlotte Perkins Gilman: Themes of Sexuality, Marriage, and Motherhood. After completing my Ph.D. I have worked as lecturer in English with a focus on literature both at the University of Gothenburg and at the Centre for Languages and Literature in Lund.

Research

My research interests include American literature, women’s and gender studies, African American studies and popular culture. My current project focuses on the autobiographies written by leaders of the Black Power movement.

Teaching

Together with Sara Ehrling from the Department of Languages and Literatures (Latin), I have also developed a pedagogical project that aims to work across the languages at the department. The project has resulted in two new in-depth undergraduate courses with a gender profile: SPL 131: Literature from Different Language Areas, Gender Perspectives (7.5 HECs) and SPL 132: Theoretical and Methodological Perspectives on Literature from Different Language Areas, Gender Profile (7.5 HECs). The courses will be offered for the first time in the Autumn of 2012.
