Clara Manco

French Lectrice
Research interestsI am the College French Lectrice, which means I give St John's students supervisions in French grammar, oral and audio-visual media, but you might see me teaching teaching Use of French at the Faculty as well. I am also a doctoral student, finishing a thesis at the Sorbonne on Restoration Comedy and its political interpretations. My research interests gravitate around the Restoration period (drama, poetry, history), but also more generally around the use of laughter as a political tool or the evolution and social role of stereotypes
