DIRE (formerly CRLHOI):
Déplacements, Identités, Regards, Ecritures
Displacements, Identity, Revision, Expression

DIRE is a multidisciplinary research group focusing on the various modes of expression (literary, artistic…) of the effects of displacement (displacement in space and in time, decontextualisation and recontextualisation of texts, migrations, imaginary displacements of centre and periphery …) and the revision of points of view entailed on identity construction (contact zones creating new fluctuating and hybrid identities).

The center gathers researchers in the fields of language and literature (French, German, English, Spanish), cultural studies, anthropology. It organizes its activities around 4 main themes:
-travelling and utopia
-bodies in movement:texts and images
-multicultural environment and diasporic identities
-rewriting and counterdiscourses

My own fields of study:
- afro-diasporic literature (19th, 20th and 21st c.): fiction and nonfiction (slave narratives, travelogues, essays)
- ethnic literature, postcolonial lit., Black British lit.
- new black diasporas and world lit.
- black womens literature
- rewriting and revision
- cultural and textual hybridity, creolisation
- Black Atlantic, migration, black history and memory, heritage, trauma, gender
