Research Group

Critical & Cultural Theory

Research Interests

My research covers a broad field comprising cultural theory, gender studies, feminism, cultural politics, culture and identity, race and ethnicity and women's writing. I welcome applications from potential PhD students in any of these areas.

My current projects include on-going work on the cultural politics of gender, race and ethnicity, culture and identity and on collective memory.

Biography

I currently teach courses at undergraduate and postgraduate levels on critical and cultural theory and cultural criticism with particular emphasis on gender, race, ethnicity and identity.

Beyond the University, I chair Butetown History & Arts Centre, a community-based arts and history project, which is located in the old multi-ethnic Docklands community of Cardiff Bay. I have been integrally involved with this organisation since 1990.
