Supervisor: Kate McLoughlin
Research interests: twentieth-century literature; form; feminism; canon formation; women’s writing; history of criticism
Doctoral research: My research looks at form in the fiction of late twentieth-century female writers. I am interested in the way in which formal analysis can excitingly illuminate a text, or perhaps draw attention to the writer's resistance to illumination. My writers of interest include, but are not limited to, Muriel Spark, Angela Carter, Gloria Naylor and Doris Lessing.
