PhD Student in Comparative Literature



My research project explores Roald Dahl’s oeuvre and brings his adult short stories into scholarship for the first time. The project will look at problematic and misogynistic portrayals of women in his fiction and how they differ according to the age of the audience.

This project will also examine adaptations of Dahl's works - including upcoming adaptations funded by Netflix. It's an exciting time to be embarking upon this research area as it offers two opportunities for new and meaningful analysis.
