Paris 3 Sorbonne Nouvelle University (Paris)
Bastien Meresse is an agrégation holder who teaches English in high school and in the Department of English at the University of Paris III. His research ranges from surveillance societies to urban studies, which make use of critical materials such as Benjamin, Kracauer, Simmel, or Baudelaire. After focusing on discipline and punishment in Pynchon’s late work, he is now preparing a PhD on the interplay between failure and Pynchon’s long-standing engagement with urban narratives in a selection of his works.
