My current research examines the role of the interview through the prism of listening and the ethical relation in films and documentaries by French, Francophone and European filmmakers. Part of this project is particularly concerned with the work of Chantal Akerman. Other research interests that dovetail with this project include installation art, theories of voice and listening, sound and relationality, and storytelling. My first monograph Godard and Sound: Acoustic Innovation in the Late Films of Jean-Luc Godard is published with I.B.Tauris and explores the relationship of sound to vision in cinema, and in turn our relationship as spectators with the audiovisual in the later films of Jean-Luc Godard.  


Albertine joined the Department of French at Bristol in 2017. After completing her PhD in French at Royal Holloway, University of London, she was awarded a Junior Research Fellowship in Modern & Medieval Languages at Churchill College, Cambridge. She also holds a BA in French with Music and an MA by Research on the films of Marguerite Duras. Her doctoral thesis was entitled 'Acoustic Spectatorship: the 1980s film and video work of Jean-Luc Godard'.


I teach and convene the following undergraduate units: 'Francophone Women Directors: Documentary Filmmaking', 'Seeing, Hearing and Thinking the Cinema of Jean-Luc Godard' and 'Introduction to French Cinema'. I also participate in the teaching of 'Translation', 'Shaping France' and 'Introduction to the Study of Cultures'.

At postgraduate level I teach and supervise students taking 'Theories of Visual Culture' and 'Cultural Encounters' for the MA in Comparative Literatures and Cultures, and the MPhil research programme in French.
