My thesis examines the mimesis of hallucinatory experience in mid-twentieth century fiction, focusing on how the phenomenology of such experience is conveyed through the manipulation of stylistic and narratological conventions. I am one of the two funded PhD students on the university’s interdisciplinary Hearing the Voice project, and my supervisors are Professor Patricia Waugh, Professor David Herman and Dr Peter Garratt.
I received both my BA and MA in English Literature from Durham University, in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
