I am a PhD student in English at the University of Exeter researching modernist heterotopias in the novels of Elizabeth Bowen. I obtained my BA (Magna Cum Laude) in 2014 from the American University of Sharjah, majoring in both English Literature and Mass Communication (with a concentration in Journalism). In 2016, I was awarded an MA with Distinction from Durham University in Twentieth and Twenty-First Century Literary Studies. My disseration examined the relationship between mourning and the figure of ‘the gentleman’ in Ford Madox Ford's The Good Soldier through the lens of Nicholas Abraham and Maria Torok’s theories of cryptonymy.
