About Danielle Hall

Danielle joined the School of Arts and Media in September 2016, and is currently a Visiting Lecturer on the BA (Hons) English Studies degree teaching on the 'Major Project' and 'Readers and Reading' modules.

Previously, Danielle has taught Haunted Narratives, Texts and Theories, Twentieth Century Women Novelists and Postcolonial Writing at Leeds Beckett University. 

Danielle completed a BA (Hons) in English Literature in 2012, and an MA in Contemporary Literatures in 2013. She was awarded a studentship by the Faculty of Arts, Environment and Technology at Leeds Beckett University to undertake her PhD research tracing the legacies of Bengali cultural heritage in contemporary Bangladeshi novels, short stories, plays, poetry and docufiction.

Danielle is currently the conference administrator for the forthcoming International Conference on Caribbean Carnival Cultures, and she co-organised the Postgraduate Research Society Symposium in 2014. Danielle has also worked as a research assistant on The DREAM Project, exploring the usefulness of autobiography, story-telling and personal experience in pedagogy. 

Research interests and activities

Danielle's research interests are focused on the literary representations of interplay between gender and nationalism in both the colonial and postcolonial eras in South Asia. She is particularly interested in the theoretical frameworks of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari on literature, gender and history in relation to this.
