Cristino Pacquing’s research centers on the politics and poetics of the body’s encounter with medicine in the literature of early modern France. His work combines literary and cultural studies, the history of science and medicine, gender and sexuality studies, and book history. He received an M.A. in Modern Letters from Lyon 2 Université Lumière, where his research examined the construction and criticism of medical knowledge and authority in both literary and medical texts. His ongoing research aims to investigate the possibilities and limitations in the ways gender, sexuality, and desire are articulated alongside science in the medical discourse of early modern France.
