I am a PhD student at the Research Centre for Literature and Cultural History and a graduate of both LJMU English’s undergraduate and MRes courses. My research explores the construction of Anglo-Indian social spaces in Raj Fiction 1877—1945 that builds on the work I undertook at Masters level.
My research focuses on authors of the Anglo-Indian experience such as E.M. Forster, Rudyard Kipling, Maud Diver, and Sara Jeanette Duncan. I am also interested in the concept of the middlebrow and the literary marketplace, travel writing, and theories of imperialism and space.
I currently work with the English department as a research assistant and can be found on Twitter via @sam_caddick.
