About the Author: Steven Wilson

Steven Wilson is Senior Lecturer in French Studies at Queen’s University Belfast. His research is situated at the interface of French Studies and the Medical Humanities and is concerned with the ways in which modern French literature, from the nineteenth century to the present, contributes to global understandings and linguistic articulations of illness, disease, pain, medical practice and dying/death. He has edited several special journal issues on these themes, including French Autopathography, French Thanatology and The Care (Re)Turn in French and Francophone Studies, and is the author of The Language of Disease: Writing Syphilis in Nineteenth-Century France (Oxford: Legenda, 2020).
