About me

Fraser McQueen is pursuing an AHRC-funded Ph.D in French Studies at the University of Stirling, with cross-institutional supervision provided by the University of Aberdeen.

His research focuses on literary and filmic representations of racial and religious divides in contemporary France, and particularly representations of Islamophobia. He explores whether artistic texts can suggest an inclusive model of community bypassing the sterile binary opposition between integrationism and multiculturalism currently prevalent in French political discourse; he approaches this issue through fiction on the basis that artistic texts may be able to challenge the boundaries of dominant discourses of exclusion in a way that interventions made in the political and media spheres cannot. Central theorists include Leela Gandhi, Jean-Luc Nancy, and Raffaele Simone.

Fraser is currently completing a SGSAH doctoral internship at the Scottish Parliament, assisting with planning and programming the Scottish Festival of Politics 2019 and various other events associated with the Parliament's twentieth anniversary.
