    Women and Madness

    Witches. Wandering wombs. Yellow wallpaper. Ecstatic women. Silenced women.

    An angel in the house. A madwoman in the attic. 

    For centuries, designations of madness denied women their social and sexual power. Let's give it back to them by understanding what 'madness' really means.

    Here’s a little bit about me to reassure you that my independently run course is not independent of academic clout!


    I have a PhD in English Literature in the field of Modernism from King’s College London.


    I have years of experience teaching undergraduates in the English Literature department at KCL. 


    I have a couple of chapters in academic books (on Modernism).

    I write for the Times Literary Supplement, Apollo, the British Library ‘Discovering Literature’ website, and The Conversation.
