CV for Dr Jane Poyner

I research and teach broadly in the areas of postcolonial and world literatures, and much of my work to date has been on South African literary and cultural studies, with a focus on literature of the apartheid and post-apartheid eras. I have published a number of books and articles on the South African author and Nobel Prize winner, J. M. Coetzee, but am interested in a wide range of contemporary South African writers. I also work on the cross-over between art and visual culture and postcolonial studies, as well as that between environmental justice movements and "Third-World" literatures.   

My office hours in Term 2, 2018-19 are Tuesdays 10.30-12.30, or by appointment. To book online, follow this link.
