Suzanne Verderder’s teaching and research focus on the relationship between subjectivity and power, and on the relation between pre-modern periods (medieval, Renaissance, Baroque) and contemporary concerns. Specific fields of study include politics, literature, art, critical theory, philosophy, religion, and psychoanalysis.
She has published on the twelfth-century woman writer, Marie de France, the essayist Michel de Montaigne, and is currently working on a book linking the so-called emergence of the individual in the medieval and Renaissance West to the reorganization of power. She has also translated two books: Charles Enderlin’s The Lost Years, and Jean-Michel Rabate’s The Ethics of the Lie.
