The following Visiting Fellows and Scholars have been supported in their research by the LHRI.

Dr Christopher Haworth, Cheney Early Career Research Fellow

Christopher Haworth is a Cheney Early Career Research Fellow based in the Leeds Humanities Research Institute. His research seeks to understand how uses of the internet transform the aesthetic, communicative, and social forms of digital art musics in the 21st century. Part of this work will pursue the application and development of new digital ethnography methods to visualise and analyse the online manifestations of particular scenes and genres. He will be investigating ways to bring the quantitative findings of his research into productive alignment with more traditional methods of humanistic scholarship, focusing in particular on the adaption and extension of genre theory to digital art musics.  

Christopher has a Ph.D. from Queen’s University Belfast (2012), and has worked as a research fellow at McGill University and University of Oxford. Prior to coming to Leeds, he worked as a researcher on the Music, Digitisation, Mediation: Towards Interdisciplinary Music Studies project. His research has been published or is forthcoming in various music journals and edited volumes, including: Computer Music Journal, Organised Sound, Leonardo Music Journal, Contemporary Music Review, Resonances: Noise and Contemporary Music (Bloomsbury), and The Oxford Handbook of Algorithmic Music (Oxford University Press). Alongside his writing interests, Christopher is also a practitioner of electronic music. 

Catherine Oakley, Research Assistant

Catherine Oakley is a cultural historian and Research Assistant on the Wellcome Trust Seed Award project ‘Pasts, Presents and Futures of Medical Regeneration’, based at the Centre for the History and Philosophy of Science. She is also in the latter stages of a PhD at the University of York, where she is the Humanities Research Centre Doctoral Fellow in English Literature (2015-2016).

Her interdisciplinary PhD, funded by the AHRC, draws on the history of science and technology, history of medicine, literary studies and early cinema studies in exploring medical, cultural, social and economic discourses of energy and rejuvenation in relation to the human body in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In 2013, she was a British Research Council Kluge Fellow at the Library of Congress, Washington, D.C. Her work has been published in Medical Humanities and the Journal for Literary and Cultural Disability Studies. She is also Founder and Primary Co-Ordinator of the Disability on Screen Network (DOSN) and Project Officer for ‘Silents Now’, a public engagement project helping contemporary audiences to rediscover silent cinema in new ways.

Dr. Silvia Bergamini 

Silvia Bergamini is a Short-Term Postdoctoral Fellow at the Leeds Humanities Research Institute (LHRI). During the fellowship she will be writing an article on Marked Syntax in Leonardo Sciascia's Late Works: Polemic Argumentation, based on her PhD thesis. 

In 2016 she was awarded her PhD in Italian studies on Syntax in Comparison: The Fiction of Leonardo Sciascia and Gesualdo Bufalino, 1981-91. Her PhD was fully funded by the University of Leeds Research Scholarship. Silvia’s thesis, carried out through a systematic and detailed analysis that integrate qualitative and quantitative data, challenges the critical commonplace that portrays Leonardo Sciascia (1921-89) and Gesualdo Bufalino (1920-96) as exponents of opposing stylistic traditions and poetics: respectively, the simple style and the baroque style. She brought to light the main features of Sciascia’s (characterized by a balance between the literary and oral pole) and Bufalino’s syntax (multi-layered, literary, harmonious), alongside their syntactical similarities (a tendency to linearity in word order, complexity and richness in the structure and architecture of the sentence). Their syntactic strategies aim to achieve different effects: argumentative-logical inquiry, sarcasm or controlled emotionality in the case of Sciascia; a descriptive-introspective, visionary or playful intention in that of Bufalino. In summary, Sciascia and Bufalino are not antithetical writers in the use of their syntax, but their functions/effects are different (together with lexical and morphological choices). 

Silvia graduated in Humanities (Lettere) from the University of Bologna in 2007, with a BA thesis on Maps, Labyrinths, Fortresses: Il Conte di Montecristo by Italo Calvino. She obtained her MA in Italian Linguistics and Literary Civilization, also from the University of Bologna, in March 2010 (with Distinction). Her MA thesis investigated The Interdicted Language in the ‘Trilogia del Gallismo’ by Vitaliano Brancati (1907-54). 

Dr Luca Sciortino, Visiting Researcher

Luca is a philosopher of science, with a background in theoretical physics. After undergraduate study at the University of Pisa and postgraduate work at the International School of Advanced Studies, Trieste, he has worked for some years as a science writer for newspapers and scientific magazines. Luca then joined the Open University (UK) as a part-time doctoral student in philosophy of science focusing on historical epistemology.The focus of his thesis was the project of styles of thinking put forward by the Canadian philosopher of science Ian Hacking, which he is still developing and assessing.  

Luca is interested in the intersection of philosophical and historical questions such as these: Are there different scientific styles of thinking? How can we characterise them? How and why do styles emerge? Have they sharp beginnings? Are they incommensurable? Beside these questions, he is interested in the related issue of contingentism versus inevitabilism in science.  

Apart from his academic activity, Luca is also a keen writer of popular science, with titles in Italian including Bianca Senzamacchia (Editoriale Scienza, 2005 also translated into Korean) Vita di un atomo scritta da se medesimo (Erickson, 2010), short novels such as La seconda vita di Polimorfus (Springer, 2010) and several news magazine articles.  

Dr Lee Broughton, Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellow 

Lee was a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellow with the Centre for World Cinemas. His project Interpreting Representations of “North” and “South” in the Spaghetti West’ interrogated the Italian Western’s representations of North and South and explored how and why they might differ to those that are typically found in American Westerns. As part of this research Lee organized a series of seminars, workshops and film events in conjunction with local cultural organizations.

Kiwoong Nam

Kiwoong was a Short-Term Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the LHRI. He worked at 3M Korea for 5 years and took an eMBA in International Design & Business Management at Aalto University, Finland. He was recently awarded a  PhD in Design at the University of Leeds.   

Kiwoong's main research interest is to understand the value of design in a business situation. In his PhD research, he sought the value of design from emotional reasoning. By adopting Holbrook's typology of consumer value (1999), he classified four discrete dimensions of value for measuring design in a business context. For research methodology, he combined qualitative approaches (for understanding design within the target group in depth) and quantitative analyses (for confirming relevance of the proposed model).  

Kiwoong also has a BSc in chemical engineering.

Dr Kasia Mika

Kasia was a visiting Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the LHRI. During the fellowship she worked on a chapter on virtual dark tourism as well as an article on the life and works of Edwidge Danticat, a Haitian American writer. In addition, Kasia developed her new research project, Disasters on Display, on memorialisation of natural disasters across postcolonial contexts (Haiti, Hawai’i, Indonesia, and Thailand). The project analysed a number of cultural archives (museums, memorials, memorial parks, digital databases) marked in different ways by natural disasters. It interrogated the contrasting roles and functions of these sites in the context of the increasingly frequent natural disasters as well as a sense of growing ‘memorial mania’ (Bourke, 2013). Kasia’s wider research interests include postcolonial disaster studies, Haitian and Caribbean studies and environmental humanities.

Kasia has a PhD from the School of English (University of Leeds) entitled ‘The 2010 Haitian Earthquake: Disaster and the Limits of Narrative.’ In it, she analysed narrative responses in French and English to the 2010 Haitian earthquake, challenging current definitions of ‘disaster’, ‘reconstruction’ and ‘recovery.’  Her research was published in The Journal of Haitian Studies and Moving Worlds. She is the current Web Officer for the Postcolonial Studies Association and works as the Elections Intern for the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti (IJDH, Boston). In her free time she’s improving her Creole. She tweets on all matters postcolonial and Haiti-related at @kasiamika1. 

Dr Shu-Shiun Ku

Shu-Shiun was a Short-Term Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the LHRI. She was a chief editor of an educational journal and then worked at the Cultural Affairs Bureau in Taiwan. She got the Government Fellowship for Overseas Study and was recently awarded a PhD in School of Performance and Cultural Industries at University of Leeds.   

Her dissertation investigated the trajectory of industrialisation and the meaning-making of the relevant discourses in Taiwan’s cultural policy over the past two decades. Her current research focuses on the recent development of the creative industries in East Asia, especially Japan, Korea and Taiwan, to examine the ways in which creative industrial policy has been adopted and transformed across national borders in terms of cultural economy and national branding, and to engage with the current debates on the tensions between cultural value and economic value.

Dr Kirsty Day

Kirsty was a visiting postdoctoral fellow in the LHRI. Previously, she was a teaching Fellow in Medieval History here at Leeds. After graduating from the University of Sheffield in 2010 with a First Class honours degree in English and History, Kirsty studied for an MA in Medieval and Renaissance Culture at the University of Southampton, for which she gained a Distinction. Kirsty completed her PhD research at the University of Leeds in 2015. Her project was funded by the AHRC's Block Grant Scholarship. She was a Kluge Fellow in the Kluge Center at the Library of Congress (Washington DC) from September–December 2013, which enabled her to research the material on her Polish case studies. Kirsty's fellowship at the Library of Congress was funded by the AHRC's International Placement Scheme, and she also received AHRC funding to undertake archival research at the Wrocław University library.

Kirsty is a historian of medieval religion, and focus on thirteenth- and fourteenth-century Central Europe (Bohemia-Moravia, Hungary, and Poland). She has particular interests in women’s and gender history, identity construction and power, the twentieth- and twenty-first century historiography of medieval religion, the use of sociological and anthropological methodologies in the creation of religious histories, and theories of the workplace. Kirsty is most interested in how religious history has been written and who by, and her research tries to understand why some groups have been marginalised in ‘mainstream’ histories of medieval religion.

Professor Namsook Woo

Dr. Namsook Woo is a professor in the Department of Police Administration of Woosuk University in Jeonju, South Korea. She received her PhD in 1994 from the Department of Political Science at Ewha Women’s University in Seoul, South Korea. Her research focuses on the impact of modern Western political thought, and particularly Spencerism and Social Darwinism, on Korea, China, and Japan in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.    

She has published several articles on these topics, including“Spencer and Yen Fu: Focused on Intellectual, Moral and Physical Theory”, Journal of the Korean Society for Political Science, 46(5), 2012, “American Social Darwinism and Focusing on Yun Tchi Ho’s Influence”, Journal of the Society for Korean & Oriental History, 11(11), 2012, and “A Study on East Asia Acceptance of the Theory of Social Evolutionism: Focused on Acceptance Historical Path and Original Type”, Journal of the Society for Korean & Oriental History, 10(2), 2011.  

Dr. Woo is also interested in the question of how Samuel Smiles' Self-Help (1867) was interpreted and indigenised in Korea, China, and Japan. On this topic, she published the article “Self Help and Development of Autonomous Korean National Subjectivity”, Journal of the Korean Society for Political Science, 49(5), 2015. She argues that through its translation from Japanese or Chinese, Self Help became the foundation of “strenuous efforts,” and “independence” ideology in Korea. More importantly, as we could see through the fact that Self Help was included in the list of prohibited books during the period of Japanese colonial rule, it did not simply remain a book of capitalist ideological philosophy, but became the public principle to solve the two most immediate tasks of the time — feudalism and Japanese imperial invasion — and as a result, it had the function of promoting the creation of an autonomous national subjectivity. She has also submitted an article about the impact of Self Help on Liang Chi Cho, one of China’s most influential political thinkers at the end of the nineteenth and early twentieth century.

While at Leeds, Dr. Woo conducted research on the contemporary meaning of the self-help ethos that re-emerged from the mid-1970s in England as neo-liberal thinkers re-evaluated mid-Victorian-era capitalism and through Margaret Thatcher’s promotion of the small state to fix the “British disease,” the self-help ethos re-emerged.

Dr Rachel Bower, Cheney Early Career Research Fellow

Rachel was a Cheney Early Career Research Fellow at the Leeds Humanities Research Institute (LHRI) for 2015-16. Her project, “From Northern England to the World” examined the relationship between poets in Leeds and Nigeria in the 1950s and 1960s. The project investigated local poetics and the international literary marketplace, with a particular focus on Tony Harrison's verse.

Rachel has a PhD from the Faculty of English, University of Cambridge entitled, “Epistolarity and the World Republic of Letters, 1980-2010”, soon to be published as a book with Palgrave Macmillan. She  recently co-edited a special issue of the Journal of Commonwealth Literature (Crafts of World Literature) with Ben Etherington and Jarad Zimbler, and her wider research includes work on poetic technique, craft and composition, world literature, field theory, anglophone Arab literature and postcolonial book history. Rachel is also a performance poet and the founder of Verse Matters: a monthly feminist arts event in Sheffield.

Dr Hannah Proctor, Wellcome Trust ISSF Research Fellow

Hannah Proctor was a Wellcome Trust ISSF Research Fellow at Leeds Humanities Research Institute, where she developed a postdoctoral project exploring the Harvard Project on the Soviet Social System (HPSSS), an ambitious Cold War era initiative for which American social scientists interviewed hundreds of Soviet emigres in an attempt to build a 'working model' of the Soviet system 'from inside'. 

Before coming to Leeds, Hannah was ISSF research fellow at Birkbeck, University of London, where she previously completed an AHRC funded PhD. Her thesis - Revolutionary Thinking: A Theoretical History of Alexander Luria's 'Romanic Science' - situated the work of Soviet psychologist and neurologist Alexander Luria in its tumultuous historical context. 

Hannah has published essays and reviews in both academic and non-academic publications, including Psychoanalysis and History, Radical Philosophy, Studies in the Maternal, Mute Magazine and The New Inquiry. She is a member of the editorial collective of Radical Philosophy. 

Dr Yasir Bin Ismail,  Visiting Scholar

Dr Yasir was a Visiting Scholar in the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies, and was previously an Assistant Professor in the Department of Arabic Language and Literature, at the International Islamic University of Malaysia, where he taught Arabic Grammar, Applied Linguistics, Teaching Arabic as a Second Language.  

Yasir's current research aims to investigate aspects of teaching that have a positive impact on Arabic grammar learning among undergraduate students at the University of Leeds. This research also will focus on the content of taught grammar, as well as the types of supplemental teaching materials used to intensify grammar proficiency amongst students. The aspects discussed in this research will provide fresh input that may be useful in improving Arabic language proficiency among undergraduate students in Malaysia, where the study of Arabic language is focusing more on classical Arabic through its old and Islamic texts, whereas in the United Kingdom, the study is on modern and practical Arabic language, where the students are being exposed to spoken dialects, modern Arabic texts and contemporary Arabic media.  

Dr Barbara Hahn, Texas Tech University, USA

Barbara was a Marie Curie International Incoming Fellow to the School of History for 2014-2016. Her project, “Rethinking Textiles,” was a history-of-technology treatment of the Industrial Revolution that made use of understudied fibres such as wool and flax, the historical textile industries of Leeds and West Yorkshire, as well as the cotton production characteristic of Lancashire.

With principal investigator Regina Lee Blaszczyk (School of History) Barbara wrote a book for classroom use and ran workshops at museums to offer new interpretations to academics and the public alike. Her previous books include Making Tobacco Bright: Creating an American Commodity 1617-1937 (Johns Hopkins University Press Series in the History of Technology, 2011) and The Cotton Kings: Capitalism and Corruption in Turn-of-the-Century New York and New Orleans, with Bruce E. Baker (Oxford University Press, forthcoming 2015).  

Dr Sophie Jones, Research Fellow

Sophie was a Wellcome Trust ISSF Fellow at Leeds Humanities Research Institute, where she developed a postdoctoral project on attention disorders and contemporary American literature. The project traced the interrelations of literary, medical, and mass media representations of ADHD, as well as asking how literary critical methods might be applied to medical practices of definition, diagnosis and treatment.  

Before coming to Leeds, Sophie was an ISSF postdoctoral fellow at Birkbeck, University of London, where she completed an AHRC funded PhD in 2015. Her PhD explored the relationship between reproductive privacy discourse and approaches to pregnancy in US literature, film, and popular media of the 1960s.

Dr Matthew John, Postdoctoral Researcher

Matthew was a post-doctoral researcher with an interest in cultural representations and receptions of violence, particularly within Film and Opera. He is currently working on the ‘Performing Violence’ project, run as a collaborative initiative between the University of Leeds and Opera North.

Matthew completed both his Undergraduate and Master’s degree in French Studies at The University of Sheffield, and, more recently, his Ph.D. at the University of Leeds. His thesis, entitled ‘Concentrationary Cinema: Aesthetics and the Camps’, formed part of a major AHRC project directed by Professors Griselda Pollock and Max Silverman on ‘Concentrationary Memories and the Politics of Representation’. It re-examines a group of films produced by Anatole Dauman’s production company, Argos films, through the theoretical lens of Jean Cayrol’s concentrationary art. Alongside his work on the ‘Performing Violence’ project, he is currently working on converting his thesis into a book as part of the IB Tauris mini-series on 'Concentrationary Memories'.  

Dr Penny Rivlin, Postdoctoral Research Assistant

Penny is Postdoctoral Research Assistant on a Sadler/British Academy funded interdisciplinary project Leeds Voices: Communicating superdiversity (2015-16). Within a discursive context of inter-ethnic conflict as normative, Leeds Voices explores negotiations of, and accommodations to, multilingual and multicultural difference that people make in Kirkgate Market – a traditional urban market in Leeds with exceptional multi-ethnic integration.

Penny has a PhD from the School of Sociology and Social Policy, University of Leeds, which explores social class and gender relations to processes of 'domesticating environmentalism' in the home. Prior to joining the LHRI, she was Research Associate on an AHRC funded project Cultural Values of Digging, (Information School, Sheffield) and Research Associate on RCUK Island Stories: Growing Digital Heritage with a Rural Island Community (School of Media and Communication, Leeds).

Jointly sponsored by the LHRI and the Brotherton Library, these fellowships enabled early-career researchers to spend four weeks in Leeds to carry out research activities aimed at developing the fellow’s ability to make strong applications to externally-funded post-doctoral positions to be subsequently held at Leeds (e.g. British Academy Post-Doctoral Fellowships; Leverhulme Early-Career Fellowships; Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions; Newton Fellowships).

Dr Christine Gilmore

Christine's research straddles the fields of Arabic studies, postcolonial literary studies, diaspora studies and development studies. She is currently working on a journal article exploring Egyptian literature as an African cultural form and on turning her thesis, entitled 'Dams, Displacement and Development in Narratives of the Nubian Awakening' into a monograph. This will frame Nubian literature as a counter-narrative to hegemonic discourses associating the Aswan High Dam with development and progress that rewrites Egyptian history from a subaltern perspective and attempts to pluralise national culture by reintegrating marginalised languages, cultures and histories into the national imaginary.    

She completed her PhD in 2016 from the University of Leeds under the supervision of Prof Graham Huggan (Leeds) and Prof Ziad Elmarsafy (York). She has previously obtained an MA in Arab World Studies (Manchester, 2011), an MA in Political Philosophy (York, 2008) and a BA in English Language and Literature (Oxon, 2002).
