Dr Sherah Wells

BA (Memphis), MA, PhD (Warwick)


After completing my PhD, I was awarded a Post-Doctoral Research bursary at the Centre for Advanced Studies, University of Nottingham, where I also taught in the School of English. My research interests include Modernist and post-war fictions, representations of mental illness, French feminist theory, and feminist geography.


Research:

My current research explores the relationship between deinstitutionalization, the introduction of psychopharmacology, and literature in America and Britain in the early-twentieth century. I am also writing an essay on the production of domesticity in PG Wodehouse's fiction.


Teaching:

In 2014/2015, I am lecturing and leading seminars for the The Writing Centre.

Previously, I have taught English/American Literature and gender studies (CSWG) at Warwick.

I have also taught at the University of Nottingham, Newman University, and Austin Peay State University (USA).
