Project Team, PhD Student
I am currently a PhD student in Politics and International Studies at The Open University. My research interests are in postcolonial theory, citizenship, cultural studies, political theories of toleration, and the possibilities, potential and promises of the decolonial. My thesis, ‘Genealogies of British Multiculturalism’ looks at the problems to which multiculturalism addresses as they are constituted through an intertwined domestic and imperial history. Before starting this project I completed a BA in Sociology at Goldsmiths College, graduating first class. I then completed an MSc in Political Sociology at the LSE with distinction.
