Research output: Other contribution


A half hour radio documentary produced by Nicola Swords for the BBC Radio 4 series Seriously. I conducted the interviews, developed the script with the producer, and announced the documentary which looked at utopias and feminist through the 1915 novel Herland by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Interviewees included social critic Laurie Penny, novelist Stephanie Saulter and academic Caitriona ni Dhuill. To accompany the documentary, I was commissioned to write a new short story No Point Talking and was recorded reading it. Both were broadcast on the same day.
