Profile:

Dr. Saveau is a specialist of Serge Doubrovsky, the first open practitioner of autofiction. In the numerous articles he has published on this writer, he has explored topics as varied as autofiction as a genre, judeity, memory and trauma, masculinity and sexuality. His current book project tentatively entitled Serge Doubrovsky ou un moi fiché à l’an 40 focuses on the haunting presence of this dark period of French history in all of this author’s autofictions. He teaches both in the French and in the Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies (CLCS) departments. He is a member of the Women in French (WIF) organization and the Société d’Etude de la Littérature Française du XXème siècle.
