Presentation

**Isabelle Brasme** is Senior Lecturer in British Literature at the University of Nîmes, and a member of the EMMA research team at the University Paul-Valéry Montpellier 3. She defenced her Accreditation to supervise research (HDR) in September 2023 at the University Paul Valéry Montpellier 3. The topic was: 'Reconsidering mimesis as a literary mode of being to the world: questioning the modernist canon, addressing representations of the war and sketching an ethics of literature’. She is Review Editor for the *Cahiers victoriens et édouardiens* and a member of the scientific committee for *Études britanniques contemporaines*. Her research focuses on literary testimonies of the First World War and on 'marginal' modernisms, with the aim of challenging modernist periodisation and canonisation. She has been particularly interested in the works of Ford Madox Ford and May Sinclair, and more recently of Siegfried Sassoon and Mary Borden. She has published various essays on these topics and figures, as well as a number of volumes, among which the monograph *Parade’s End de Ford Madox Ford: vers une esthétique de la crise* (PULM, 2016), a collaborative volume entitled: *Homo Duplex: Ford Madox Ford’s Experience and Aesthetics of Alterity* (PULM, 2020), and a collaborative volume in French of translations and essays on writers and war, entitled *Les Artistes et la Guerre* (Houdiard, 2017). She has co-edited with Jean-Michel Ganteau and Christine Reynier the collaborative volume *The Humble in 19th- to 21st-Century British Literature and Arts* (PULM, 2017). Her most recent volume, *Writers at War* (Routledge, 2023), addresses the most immediate representations of the First World War in the prose of Ford Madox Ford, May Sinclair, Siegfried Sassoon and Mary Borden; it interrogates the various ways in which these writers contended with conveying their war experience from the temporal and spatial proximity of the warzone and investigates the multifarious impact of the war on the (re)development of their aesthetics. She is currently co-editing a volume of essays on May Sinclair (PULM) with Leslie de Bont and Florence Marie, and a volume on the ecopoetics of war (Routledge) with Sylvain Belluc and Guillaume Tanguy.
