Georgia has just finished her doctorate on representations of madness in contemporary Scottish writing in the School of English Drama and the Arts at Loughborough. Her academic interests are in contemporary literature, especially Alice Thompson and Janice Galloway, and critical theory, particularly queer and affect theory. She is also project assistant for the Gendered Lives Research Group. Currently, she convenes a module on Postmodern America, and has recently lectured on Luce Irigaray, Virginie Despentes, Margaret Atwood, Siri Hustvedt and Claudia Rankine. Previously she has taught on Narrative Forms and Fictions, the theory modules Critical Studies One and Two (now deceased) and a module on the Victorian Bildungsroman. She divides her time between Loughborough and Sheffield, where she helps organise feminist arts events with LaDIYfest Sheffield, occasionally writes a blog about the lived experience of gender (which you can read here), and plays a lot of football.
