    Biography

    Personal Statement

    I am a Senior Lecturer in English Literature in the Department of English. I have previously taught at different universities in the United Kingdom, United States and Senegal. My main research areas are in postcolonial literature and theory, new literatures in English, contemporary British fiction and comparative literature. My theoretical interests are varied, but include nationalism/transnationalism, race, identity, globalisation and the nexus between politics and literature. My first monograph explored contemporary texts and cultural representations which engage with legacies of the British empire in the British countryside and in postcolonial rural spaces. I am currently embarking on a research project on slave narratives and representations of slavery in the contemporary British novel. I would welcome postgraduate students with research interests in any of my research areas or in interdisciplinary work.
