Personal profile

Scholarly biography

I began my academic career at The University of Bristol where I achieved a first class honours in BSc. Politics and International Relations. Following the completion of my undergraduate I moved to SOAS, University of London were I completed a masters in Comparative Political Thought with distinction. My studies at SOAS centred around queer theory, politics, temporality and cinema. My masters thesis was a queer temporal reading of the theory of Donna Haraway and the Afrofuturist music and cinema of Janelle Monáe. I am currently in my 3rd year of doctoral study at The University of Brighton where I am researching Queer Theory and its relation to rhythm. My doctoral thesis looks to build upon Freeman's hypersocial approach to Queer Theory through a concideration of Pierre Bourdieu and Virginia Woolf as queer theorists of time.
