Professor Linda Ruth Williams


I grew up in Bristol, and studied at Sussex University: my first degree was in English at Sussex University; I followed this with an MA in Critical Theory from Sussex, and then a PhD on Lawrence, Nietzsche, Freud and feminism, before I moved fully into film teaching and research in the early 1990s. Before I came to Exeter in 2017 I was Professor of Film in the English Department at Southampton University, and before that I taught at Liverpool University and at Manchester University.
