Dr Joseph Harris


Joe Harris is a specialist in early modern French literature, with a particular focus on theatre. His research into death, violence and audience spectatorship in Corneille’s tragedies feeds into his final-year course ‘Deadly Passions:  Seventeenth-Century French Tragedy’ (on Corneille and Racine) and the first-year CLC course ‘Introduction to Literary Genre: Tragedy’, which sets tragedy in a transhistorical and international context.  In other courses he also teaches early modern playwrights and novelists such as Molière, Racine, Prévost and Madame de Graffigny; these authors allow him to develop his research interests into questions of gender, laughter, passion, sexuality, psychology and stagecraft.
