Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership - Student Profiles



My doctoral research project investigates the relationship between art and antisemitism in Ezra Pound’s work and thought. Through examining how Pound’s economic and political activity became saturated by an engagement with visual culture, my research lies at the intersection between the politics of exclusion and the interaction between text, ideology and image. 

Prior to beginning my undergraduate degree, I worked in film production. I graduated as Valedictorian from the New College of the Humanities with a BA in English (First), and was awarded the University of London Sir Charles Harris Prize for achieving the highest overall degree results for the University of London English BA worldwide. Following this, I completed the MSt in Literature (1900- The Present Day) at The Queen’s College, University of Oxford (Distinction). My PhD research builds directly on my MSt dissertation, which explored Pound’s utilisation of film as a vehicle for both vorticism and fascism from 1918-1932.
