Dr Ian McCall is a Senior Lecturer in Modern Languages at the University of Southampton.

I gained a BA in French and German from Westfield College, University of London, before completing a doctorate in French Literature at Queen Mary and Westfield College. Before coming to Southampton, I worked in France as an assistant and then a lecteur at University of Paris (Paris X). I frequently return to the Haute-Marne département where I have had a second home for many years.





Research interests

I have undertaken substantial research on the French author Marcel Proust which led to a book and several journal articles. I then worked on the more contemporary authors, Andreï Makine, Amélie Nothomb and Dai Sijie, with a particular focus on translingualism and intertextuality. My involvement with Routes into Languages resulted in publications in the field of language learning. More recently I have moved into the area of Translation Studies and published on pseudo-translation, with a further publication forthcoming. I have also supervised to completion a PhD on translating Shakespeare into Vietnamese and Masters dissertations researching the role of translation in language learning.


Book Chapter

My current teaching is mainly in the areas of Translation Studies and French Language. I co-ordinate and teach on the popular final year modules in Translation Theory and Practice and Audiovisual Translation and contribute to French Language Stages 5 and 7. I supervise students at both MA and PhD level.

Postgraduate supervision

I would welcome applications from potential students interested in the following areas:

  • Translation Studies, especially literary and pseudo-translation
  • Audiovisual Translation, especially subtitling
  • Translingual Authors
  • Proust, especially his relationships to contemporary authors
  • Language Learning
