Thesis title: ‘Why am I as I am—and what am I?’: Queer Coming-Of-Age Narratives in the Early Twentieth-Century
Supervisor: Professor Michael Whitworth
My research focuses on queer coming-of-age stories in the early twentieth-century, studying Vita Sackville-West, Christopher St. John, Radclyffe Hall, and Virginia Woolf. With a particular interest in why queer writers turned to this genre, my research explores how the coming-of-age story became a repository for questions about what it meant to be queer.
Into That World Inverted. In this podcast series, two friends set off on a road trip of the South East of England to unearth and explore its queer histories.
