Professeur, Caen

Responsable de l'équipe ERIBIA (LSA)

Françoise Baillet is Professor of British Culture and History at the Université Caen Normandie, France.

Her research generally addresses questions of visual representation in the Victorian illusrated press and, over the past few years, has mainly focused on aestheticised renderings of working-class life in The Illustrated London News and The Graphic.

She has published a number of articles on the role of the nineteenth-century press in the shaping of class, gender and national identities in the specific context of the debates around the Second Reform Act (1867).

In Visions and Divisions. Cultural Discourses and Victorian Social Order  (1850-1880) – upcoming, Presses Universitaires de Rennes – she examines Punch as a discursive and ideological construct, the site of a pictorial (re)configuration of the mid-Victorian social scene.

Her current projects include a chapter on nineteenth-century print culture as part of a collection of essays on Issues and Singularities in the Illustrated Press (2021), an article on the Punch Pocket Book (upcoming, Summer 2020, Victorian Periodicals Review) and a monograph on the Bradbury and Evans publishing business (1840-1865).

She is a member of several national and international academic networks - Research Society for Victorian Periodicals (RSVP), Société Française d'Etudes Victoriennes et Edouardiennes (SFEVE), Centre de Recherches et d'Etudes en Civilisation Britannique (CRECIB), British Association for Victorian Studies (BAVS) - and is currently the Director of the ERIBIA research team.
