Biography

I have a BA (hons) in English Literature (University of Central Lancashire), an MA in Literary and Cultural Studies (University of Lancaster) and a PhD in English (University of Lancaster).

My first monograph was published in 2019 by Cambridge University Press, and is entitled Conceptualising the Global in the Wake of the Postmodern: Literature, Culture, Theory.

I am currently working on a new book-length project provisionally entitled Visions of the Collective: Democracy and Human Formations in 21st Century Literature and Culture. The book will explore a resurgence of figurations of the collective form in contemporary culture, whilst interrogating how these figurations bear on the question of democracy.
