About Helen Penet

My name is Helen Penet. I have been a lecturer in English and Irish Studies at Université de Lille (France) since 2003. After a PhD on Samuel Beckett's self-translations in 2002, my research currently focuses on contemporary Irish prose writing, with a particular interest in women's writing and in YA literature. I regularly deliver conference papers and publish on these fields. I am also on the editorial board of the journal Etudes Irlandaises, where I am in charge of Varia editions.

Helen Penet is a lecturer in English and Irish Studies at Université de Lille (France).
