Education and Interests:
After pursuing studies in Hypokhâgne and Khâgne and at the University of Lorraine, focusing in particular on Tim Burton’s glorification of deviancy, Adrien Guyot left his native France for the University of Alberta in Canada where his experience abroad led him to develop an altered perspective towards francophone literature and embrace a new exciting academic journey. In 2009, he completed a M.A. in which he examined the notion of monstrosity in the development of Caribbean and Québécois literature. In 2016 he obtained a Ph.D. from the University of Alberta. His dissertation, entitled L’Amérique, un ailleurs partagé (America: A Shared Elsewhere) explored this time around the concept of Americanity, the subversive, postcolonial and symbolic reappropriation of the American continent by the cultural minorities of the Americas. A member of the Canadian Literature Centre, Adrien has been actively participating to conferences and research groups. His current areas of research include heterotopian spaces and dystopian fictions and their contemporary manifestations in American literary and filmmaking production.
For those of you who may know him, it goes without saying that Adrien is truly passionate about teaching. He has been sharing his knowledge at the University of Alberta and Concordia University of Edmonton for eight years. He has trained seven French instructors and is the recipient of the 2011 Graduate Student Teaching Award of the University of Alberta.
