Ania Wroblewski holds a Ph.D. in French literature from Université de Montréal. A specialist in twentieth and twenty-first century French literature, art, and visual culture, her research centers on the meeting point of literature and its audiences. Her first book, titled La vie des autres. Sophie Calle et Annie Ernaux, artistes hors-la-loi (2016), was published by Les presses de l’Université de Montréal and was a finalist for both the Canada Prize in the Humanities and Social Sciences 2017 and the Prix du meilleur livre de l’APFUCC 2017. Her current research studies literature and art in relation to the law and its transgression, focusing on works that routinely provoke public debates about the freedom of creation, the hierarchy of cultural values, and the responsibility of the authors and their publishers, by writers such as such as Marguerite Duras, Annie Ernaux, Michel Houellebecq, Marcela Iacub, and Richard Millet.
