Oliver Brett

Assistant Professor, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences



I started in post in the School of Health Sciences at the University of Nottingham in November 2021, having previously worked in a range of clinical settings at the University Hospitals of Leicester (most recently in the occupational health field). I obtained my PhD in 2014 through the School of Arts at the University of Leicester, specializing in documentary representations of queer agency, identity and experiences of 'difference'. I have published in the areas of queer migration, sex work and transgender identities, which I am interested in exploring further in relation to public health documentaries and health humanities. I am also interested in health and work and was awarded a M.Sc. in Occupational Health from the University of Birmingham in 2021.
