Research interests
Topic Description Research area
Caribbean Scottish Relations A remapping of colonial history focused on the often paradoxical complexity of relations determined by imperial power. It accounts for the "difference" that separates Scotland from the Caribbean — what sets “Blackness” apart from “Scottishness”, but it also brings these two geopolitical areas and ethnic groups together. The inquiry results in a multi-vocal discourse that deconstructs national narratives, unveils colonial inscriptions, and releases the creolised images and words that demand full citizenship in the representation of the Circum-Atlantic. English and Anglophone Literatures
Cultural Studies: Colonialism/Colonial Discourse
Diaspora studies Diaspora is a complex concept that foregrounds different meanings and applications. It focuses on migrants’ cross-border connections and flows, as well as on the establishment of social and symbolic ties. It challenges essentialist views of identity, foregrounding ideas of community that are fluid and constantly re-negotiated. Literature is a powerful vehicle for the representation of diasporic experiences. Diasporic narratives (novel, autobiographical writings), located at different points of space and time, grounded in a day-to-day experiences of diaspora, have the ability to relationally construct other places and other times. English and Anglophone Literatures
Cultural Studies and Mentalities
Ecocriticism and British Literature/culture Ecocriticism deals with the ecological approach to literary studies. It aims at bringing a transformation of literary studies by linking literary criticism and theory with the ecological issues at large. Ecocriticism is directly concerned with both nature (natural landscape) and the environment (landscape both natural and urban)as described in literary texts . English and Anglophone Literatures
Critical Theory & Poetics
Equity: literary and juridical intersections Equity is a protean concept that covers the fields of law, philosophy of law, and morality. In the history of human ideas the problem of equity has been inseparable from that of justice. This theme is re-echoed throughout English literature in particular in Shakespeare's plays.

Cultural Studies: Colonialism/Colonial Discourse
Memory Studies Concerned with the social, cultural and political shifts determining how, what and why individuals, communities and societies remember and/or forget. English and Anglophone Literatures
Cultural Studies and Mentalities
Modernism and nationalism Exploring the intersections between Modernism — a transnational movement by definition — and nationalisms in the early 20th century, it aims at identifying forms of "vernacular cosmopolitanism". English and Anglophone Literatures
Historical period codes: 1880-1918
Postcolonial theory A body of thought concerned with the political, aesthetic, economic, and social impact of European empires between the 18th and the 20th century, and how this has or should have re-shaped our understanding of local/global connections. English and Anglophone Literatures
Cultural Studies and Mentalities
Post-Union Scottish Literature Scottish literature between 1707 and the present day, its specific developments (in terms of language, themes, style), it complex dialogue with the Centre, its collusion with British imperialism in the imperial age, its "devolution" from "English literature" in the 20th and 21st century. English and Anglophone Literatures
Geographical-Cultural Areas: Scotland
Scottish Literary Renaissance (1920-50) The first wave of the so-called Scottish Literary Renaissance, a movement that aimed at reevaluating and re-inventing the Scottish literary "tradition" between and in in the aftermath of the World Wars, as a vernacular expression of Modernism. English and Anglophone Literatures
Historical period codes: 1918-1960
Slavery studies Focused on providing a deeper understanding of slavery and post-slavery in any period and any geographical region. An interdisciplinary field intersecting with other field of academic inquiry, such as diaspora studies, globalization, and minority studies. English and Anglophone Literatures
