Personal profile

Biography

I am a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow in English Literature and co-editor of the Journal of War and Culture Studies. My Leverhulme project is entitled ‘Imperial Politics and Medical Care: 1915–1925’. 

I completed my PhD in English Literature from the University of Sheffield (UK) in 2018. At Sheffield, I was the Vice-Chancellor’s scholar and my PhD was entitled ‘Nursing Politics and the Body in First World World War Life-Writing’. I stayed back in Sheffield for another year to take up the role of Postdoctoral Research Associate in the AHRC-funded project ‘Literature, Psychoanalysis and the Death Penalty 1900–1950’. I was then a Wellcome Trust ISSF Fellow at the University of Leeds where my project was entitled ‘Wounds for the King-Emperor: Race and Malaise in the Medical Treatment of the Wounded Indian Soldier during the First World War’. Since March 2021, I have been a Visiting Fellow at Oxford Centre for Life-Writing, Wolfson College, University of Oxford.

Research interests

My research interests are war writing (particularly literatures of the First World War), Life-writing, twentieth and twenty-first century (Anglophone and Bengali) literature, colonialism and postcolonialism, feminist theory, and Medical Humanities. I have published widely in each of these areas. My teaching interests align closely with my research.
