I am a final-year PhD Candidate in Literature and Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Essex. My doctoral thesis focuses on representations of autonomy and political agency in Virginia Woolf's fiction and is funded by the Consortium for the Humanities and the Arts South-East England (CHASE) and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). This forms part of a wider research interest in the relationship between literature, gender, and political action in the context of modernist and post-war literature. My work is also concerned with alternative histories of modernism, radical feminist politics and writing, intersectional histories of ideas, and literature and the law.
