I have supervised interdisciplinary doctoral projects on Australian drama, Caribbean women's writing, and contemporary women's writing and psychopathy.
I am currently supervising projects on ecocriticism and climate fiction, spatial organisation in protest camps, literary legacies of La Malinche and gender-based violence in Mexico, contemporary Turkish women's writing (English), and British Latinx Studies.
I would be interested in supervising PhD projects on the following broad topics:
- Contemporary North American literature and culture
- Border studies and cross-border literature and culture (for example USA, Canada, Mexico)
- Literary and cultural representations of borders, citizenship, and belonging in the North American context
- Vulnerability studies and/or narratives of risk and resilience.
I have contributed to all years of the English degree, including, at Year 1, EN1070 Writing Matters, EN1002 Classic US Texts, and EN1005 Modern American Writing; at Year 2, EN2013 Diversity in American Literature and my option module, EN2011 American Literary Figures; at Year 3, EN3010 Dissertation, EN3060 Science Fiction: Adventures in Space and Time; and my option module EN3021 Literatures of Protest.
I also contribute to the MA Modern and Contemporary Literature, offering sessions on EN7001 Research Methods; EN7031/7032 Modern Literature and Theory 1/2; EN7252 Twenty-First Century Fiction; including my own specialist option module, EN7922 North American Indigenous Literatures. I also supervise MA dissertations.
