I am a postgraduate research student at the University of Oxford, studying for a DPhil in English. My research is on literature related to and inspired by the 1971 Bangladesh war. My aim is to bring into conversation war writings from Bangladesh, Pakistan, and India. My primary fields of work are postcolonial studies and literature related to violent conflicts. A major part of my research involves translating texts from Bengali and Urdu to English.

Maria Morelli
Research Fellow

I am a scholar in contemporary women’s writing with a broad international background and a particular interest in trans-disciplinary research. I am a member of the Interdisciplinary Gender and Sexuality Research Cluster based at De Montfort University, and a newly appointed member of the Centre for the Study of Contemporary Women’s Writing, CCWW, London. From 2018-2021 I held the position of Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow in the Departments of Modern Italian Studies and Cultural Heritage at the University of Milan, Italy. In the past four years I have been acting as Expert Evaluator for the European Commission for the Humanities and Social Sciences cluster, assisting in the evaluation of project proposals under the main EU funding schemes. Currently, I am working on an interdisciplinary and collaborative research project which I would be happy to implement at SOAS across several departments within the Faculty of Social Sciences, Arts & Humanities. Using gender as an analytical category, this project will seek to propose a new paradigm influencing the way in which we understand postcolonial literary studies. It will do so by countering the identification of postcolonial literature as Anglo-centric, instead highlighting the multilingualism and multiculturalism of ‘minor’— in the sense of canonically peripheral — European literatures. Focusing on the socio-cultural processes of inclusion and exclusion through a postcolonial and feminist perspective, it will look at scarcely studied national literatures, with the aim of seeking out patterns and comparisons, and proposing new methodologies that adopt a transnational lens across national literatures and disciplines. These methodologies will connect Postcolonial, European, and Women’s Studies, while opening up new intersections with the field of Trauma Studies in terms of the textual expression of forms of trauma linked to exile, migration or inter-generational relationships/connections. This new strand of research links into, whilst also develops, the research practice I have thus far conducted on ‘minority’ feminist and ‘queer’ literatures and their shared expression of exclusion and non-assimilationism in relation to the canonical paradigms.
