AboutI am a student, writer, literary critic, and interdisciplinary feminist scholar who is interested in the relationship between narrative, alternate feminist historiographies, and social change. Particularly, I am interested in looking at the subversive potential of the modernist aesthetics of literary and historic rupture to create alternate feminist literary archives using postcolonial literature. I am keen to continue resituating twentieth-century modernisms in relation to postcolonialism, distilling transnational and transhistorical ideas, aesthetic forms, and the ability of postcolonial fiction to unsettle Eurocentric literary hegemonies.
My public-facing work includes reviews, essays, and literary presentations.
I’m currently a prospective PhD applicant.
