Raphaël Piguet received his Ph.D. in French literature from the University of Geneva in 2017. He is currently Head of Course for FRE 105 and FRE 207. His research interests include travel literature, literary theory and the interactions between literary discourses and other sciences, in particular anthropology, philosophy, and mathematics. He recently co-directed an issue of Critique on Éric Chevillard (with Philippe Roger). Having just edited a book on bicycle travel narratives (À plume et à pédales. Voyages cyclistes, Paris, Lettres modernes Minard, April 2022), he is currently working on a book project that deals with the works of Claude Lévi-Strauss and the textual genesis of structuralism.
