I am a former student of the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan and received my PhD from the Sorbonne in 2003 for a thesis on Young British Art and the notion of scandal. Now a senior lecturer at the Sorbonne Nouvelle, I publish regularly on contemporary British art and co-edited Marketing Art in the British Isles, 1700 to the Present, published by Ashgate in 2012.
