Katie (AiW co-founder) likes thinking and talking about global literary and cultural studies and/as activism - in many of its brows, high and low - and critical theory to anyone who will listen. Does a lot of reading and writing, loves a bit of theatre and is known to be partial to ("rubbish") TV. Research tends to be on overlaps of visual and literary production; my biggest thing (the PhD, 2017), looked at contexts of reception of post-apartheid literature through the various modes of the work of Ivan Vladislavić, a writer, editor, and reflexive art-essayist, whose time as Social Studies and Fiction Editor for radical publisher Ravan Press in the 80s included editing the groundbreaking magazine Staffrider.
