Faculty Member Information


My research focuses on the intersections between literature, politics and globalization, with particular attention to black political cultures. I have published or have forthcoming work on dub poetry, black British poetry and fiction in the late-twentieth century and the cultural politics of the car. My research and teaching interests cover the fields of black British, black Atlantic, and postcolonial literatures alongside critical theory and cultural studies. My current book project traces the neglected cosmopolitan allegiances within twenty-first century black British texts and engages with writers such as Andrea Levy, James Berry, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Zadie Smith, Alex Wheatle, Mike Phillips and Bernardine Evaristo.
