My PhD research is a collaborative project between QMUL and Amnesty International and explores the limits and possibilities of abortion storytelling in contesting repressive abortion regimes. The project is situated in queer and feminist theory and will borrow from the art/literary practice of autotheory to develop a polyvocal storytelling methodology. I have a BA (University of York) and MA (UCL) in History and an MA (Birkbeck) in creative writing.
