Marion is a graduate of the École Normale Supérieure, Lyon, and holds an agrégation in Modern Literature. She completed her PhD in French Literature and Culture with Professor Alain Pagès at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University (Paris 3). From 2014-2017, she was a Research Associate at the Centre de Recherche sur les Poétiques du XIXe siècle in Paris. Since 2017, she has been affiliated with the ITEM/CNRS Zola Centre. Marion has taught French literature and culture at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University (2014-2018) and at the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne (2018-2019).

Marion specialises in nineteenth-century French literature and culture, with a particular interest in the relationship between political history, legal history and narrative form. Her work uses the evolution of familiar structures and their representation as a prism through which to explore these connections. Her doctoral research investigated how debates surrounding new legislation on divorce reshaped French fiction and revised an old, successful plot: the never-ending story of the unfortunate marriage. 

Building on this investigation, Marion’s postdoctoral research focuses on the family’s experiences of the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871, a traumatic moment in France's history and milestone in the formation of modern Europe. By analysing a large variety of sources - spanning fiction, journalism, political pamphlets and popular visual culture - her current project explores the representation of the family in the aftermath of the ”forgotten war”, apparently condemned to narrative silence by the famous words of French statesman Léon Gambetta: y penser toujours, n’en parler jamais.
