Dr Hannah Murray PhD, FHEA

Lecturer in American Literature English


Personal Statement

After studying for my BA in English Language and Literature (Leeds) and my MA in American Literature and Culture (Leeds), I received my PhD in American Studies from the University of Nottingham in 2017. Before joining Liverpool in 2019 I was Teaching Fellow in Early American Studies at King's College London.

My research interests centre on race and citizenship in nineteenth-century American literature, with a specific focus on how speculative genres (the gothic, horror, science fiction, utopia/dystopia) articulate the relationship between the two.

Academic support and feedback hours: Monday, 1-2pm; Wednesday 10-11am, via Teams.
