Research project: Writing US identities: Literary perspectives on the Persian Gulf and Iraq wars
"My thesis explores the different forms of literature that emerged from the US Gulf and Iraq wars, from conventional novels to internet blogspots. I aim to form a literary criticism which reflects the multiple identities and fragmented experiences of combatants and civilians in the literature of these conflicts.
"Whilst working on my PhD, I have taught seminars on undergraduate modules in English Literature. I am also the recipient of a three year Nottingham Trent University studentship for postgraduate study.
"I value the friendly and supportive atmosphere at NTU. I have further developed my time-management skills, my analytical skills, and my communication skills. Most importantly, I have learned a lot about how I work as a researcher and about how to motivate myself."
