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. I am an affiliated researcher in Centre for the History of Medicine.


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 2013/14, I will be teaching on the modules Modes of Reading and North American Women Writers as well as contributing lectures and seminar teaching for the Writing Centre.
