CV for Dr Jane Poyner

I teach in the areas of postcolonial and world literatures and cultures. Much of my research has been on South African literary and cultural studies, with a focus on literature of the apartheid and post-apartheid eras. My most recent book, The Worlding of the South African Novel: Spaces of Transition, was published in 2020 by Palgrave as part of its New Comparisons in World Literature series. I have published a number of books and articles on the South African author and Nobel Prize winner, J. M. Coetzee, one of which won a prize for academic excellence. I also work on the cross-over between art and visual culture and postcolonial studies, as well as that between environmental justice and "Third-World" literatures.    

My office hours in Term 1, 2020-21 are Mondays 12.30-1.30 and Wednesdays 11.30-12.30, or by appointment. To book online, follow this link.
