Alice Labourg is teaching English as a Prag at the University of Rennes-II for undergraduate and graduate students in arts, literature and communication. She recently defended her PhD entitled “Painting and Writing: The Pictorial Imagination in Ann Radcliffe’s Gothic Novels” (highest honour). Her research focuses on text-image relations, in particular relations between writing and painting, questions of intertextuality, intermediality and intersemioticity, relations between literature and the visual arts, theoretical cross-readings between textual analysis and image analysis, aesthetics and visual semiotics, as well as on the British Gothic novel.
