Dr Danielle Sands

Research interests

I joined the School of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures in September 2015 as Lecturer in Comparative Literature and Thought after a year as Lecturer in Philosophy in the Department of Politics and International Relations. In 2016-7 (term 1), I am Programme Director for Comparative Literature and Culture. 

My research is interdisciplinary, crossing literary studies, philosophy, and critical theory. My research interests include: literary and critical theory, 20th and 21st century fiction, post-Kantian European philosophy, philosophy of religion, philosophy and literature, aesthetics, animal studies, and environmental ethics. I am interested in supervising MA by Research or PhD dissertations in any of these areas.
