Research Output per year
I joined the University of Bristol in 2016 as a PhD candidate affiliated to both the Department of English Literature and the School of Modern Languages and am now Lecturer in Global Literatures and Liberal Arts. My research has been funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, through the South West and Wales DTP.
My doctoral thesis looks at the intersection of Cold War paradigms and World Literature, focusing on the writing of Svetlana Alexievich, Roberto Bolaño and Marlon James. Central to this research has been an examination of the relationship between global forms and the politics of cultural production at different scales, drawing on decolonial theory, materialist approaches to world literature and scholarship on intersectionality. Key issues include a literary aesthetics of dissolution, the withdrawl of community in the wake of 'the neoliberal transition', formal representations of tensions between the collective and the individual, and the production of border(land)s.
