Personal statement

My main interests lie in nineteenth and twentieth century African American literature and culture. I'm particularly interested in representations of what Fanon calls 'lived experience' and am currently engaged in drawing on philosophies of embodiment in order to investigate how this experience is represented in diverse literary texts.

Professional qualifications

  • BA Bath Spa University
  • MA UCL
  • PhD Warwick University.

Teaching specialism

I currently teach the following undergraduate modules:

  • EN4001: Critical Reading 1
  • EN5001: Critical Reading 2
  • EN6001: The English Project

Current scholarship

I am currently working on a series of articles that attempt phenomenological analyses of Frederick Douglass's slave narratives.
