About Renée Landell
I am a fully-funded AHRC Techne doctoral researcher completing a full-time PhD in the School of Humanities at Royal Holloway, University of London. My Research interests include Carribean studies, post-colonial scholarship, literary criticism, ecocriticism and womanism. Alongside my studies, I have served two full terms as the part-time BAME officer at the Students Union, working towards fair representation for all students by creating liberation campaigns and passing policies that directly affects BAME students. I perform scholar-activism in an independent capacity as founder of Beyond Margins, while working closely with various services at RHUL, such as Careers, Cultural Diversity Network (staff), The Library, and external organisations and charities. I am also a member of the REC Self-assesment Team which designs strategies and provides feedback on the University with the aim of increasing the representation of Black, Asian Ethnic Minority staff and students.
