Biography

I received a first class BA in English and Art History in 2009 and went on to do my MA in Critical Theory, graduating in 2010 with a distinction. Between the end of my MA and starting a PhD I moved to Paris to work as an English teacher, learn French and attend the seminars of Hélène Cixous organised by l'Université de Paris VIII. I returned to Sussex to start my PhD in 2013.
