Dr Jérôme Game Identities and Culture in Europe - Word and Image, March 2002 - February 2004, then to a post at the American University of Paris  

As a UCL Mellon Fellow Jérôme was researching Identities and Culture in Europe with a focus on Word and Image, the role played by visual and textual representations in the construction of identity.

Research interests

Contemporary French philosophy, literature and cinema.

During his Fellowship Jérôme worked on:
- two books provisionally entitled: A Poetics of the Virtual: New Approaches to Contemporary French Literature; and The Cinema of Jean Eustache.
- the interactions existing between the textual and the visual in modern and contemporary French culture, with particular emphasis on the construction of identities. This work related directly to Jerome's role as a convenor of the UCL Mellon Research Seminar, with the aim of developing it into the matter for a book.

Jérôme also organised regular poetry readings by contemporary French authors.
