Autorenporträt
Jennifer Birkett was born in the West Riding of Yorkshire and educated at the local grammar school and St Hilda's College, Oxford. She was Lecturer at Dundee University from 1971-88, Chair of French Studies at the University of Strathclyde, 1988-90, and since 1990 has held the established Chair of French Studies at Birmingham University. Her research derives from a number of specialist bases in French Studies, but has always been cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary. She was active in the 1970s and 1980s in the AUT (Association of University Teachers), at local and national levels, and was Secretary and President of the Association of University Professors and Heads of French in the early 1990s. From its inception in the mid-1980s, she was committee member, Deputy Convenor, and (until 2002) Convenor of the Standing Committee of Arts and Social Sciences.
