Research student,

Overview

After receiving a scholarship to pursue a PhD, I did a presessional course at Canterbury Christ Church University and I am currently a PhD student in Critical and Cultural Theory at Cardiff University.


I hold a BA in English and an MA in Literature and Civilisation from the University of Tlemcen.


I am researching the intersection of the ludic and the literary in various art forms and the very questions of art, literature, and play with a particular focus on 'literary' games and the socio-political context of their emergence.
