I teach undergraduate modules in translation, as well as my final-year module ‘Contemporary Representations of the Body: Literature, Theory and Art’. This module brings together material from across all of the language areas in our Department to examine how the body might be understood differently across various cultures, and under varying political structures etc. Together we explore the body as a site where systems of power converge, and are made visible and present.
I also convene the team-taught module ‘Global Critical Theory’, which forms part of our MA in Comparative Literature and Critical Theory. This module seeks to understand Critical Theory beyond its situation in Western thought, moving from postcolonial and decolonial thinking through theories of language, psychoanalysis, biopolitics, etc.
I contribute to teaching and supervision on our MRes programme in Sexuality and Gender Studies, teaching sessions on transgender theory, gender studies and intersectionality. I also run the module ‘Research Methods in Critical Cultural Studies’.
