Cécile Tresfels

-I work on 16th century French Literature and my research is driven by the concept of peregrinity, which includes the foreign, the bizarre, the curious or even the monstrous. I'm interested in how people, writers and travelers apprehend the diverseness of the world. I completed my master’s degree at the University of Paris 3-Sorbonne Nouvelle where I worked on Rabelais’ hybrid writing.
I am currently working at the crossroads of critical semantics and the history of the self, exploring the changes that the word "apprehension" underwent during the 16th century, and the relationship of this semantic change with the way the early-modern subject experiences the world.
