Academic life

I am a part-time academic, and am currently studying for a PhD in literary linguistics at the University of Sheffield.

 

I am interested in how knowledge from the cognitive sciences can help us understand how we comprehend literary texts and life narratives. My research involves using concepts such as scripts and schemas, categorization and deixis to inform stylistic analyses of autobiographical and fictional texts. My focus is the work of Margaret Atwood.
