Alison Marmont is a doctoral researcher in Modern Languages at the Universities of Southampton and Exeter and is funded by the AHRC South West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership. 

She graduated with an MA and an MSt in Modern Languages from the Universities of Glasgow and Oxford respectively. Her interdisciplinary project examines the novels of the contemporary French authors Marie NDiaye and Linda Lê and is supervised by Dr Aude Campmas, Dr Helen Vassallo and Dr Scott Soo. In particular, it sets out to analyse how the authors’ ethnic minority female characters experience and negotiate multiple intersecting forms of discrimination in France because of their gender, ethnicity and class and how this is shaped by Republican Universalist ideology and discourse.
