Dr Toma awarded a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship

We are delighted that Dr Cosmin Toma has been awarded a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship.

His research will examine the political implications of the ‘neuter’ or ‘neutral’ (‘le neutre’), an elusive, even paradoxical term developed by the 20th century French writer Maurice Blanchot throughout the long 1960s, even as he became increasingly more outspoken in his commitment to left-wing politics, in staunch opposition to Charles de Gaulle’s regime.

More broadly, Dr Toma’s research aims to rethink the often fraught relationship between text and context in the field of literary studies.
