Personal profile


I am an AHRC (NWCDTP) funded PhD candidate at the University of Manchester. My thesis is titled ‘Modernist Metaphors of Sexual Violence’ and explores tensions surrounding scenes of sexual violence in the work of James Joyce, T. S. Eliot, and Jean Rhys. I challenge critical mis-readings of these images as easy metaphorical vehicles for modernity, nationhood, or cross-racial victimhood. Instead, I suggest that these scenes often assert their own significance as instances of violence and non-consent, working against the metaphors they are presumed to convey.
