Alice has research interests in the cultural representation of disability and interdisciplinary approaches to health, illness and the body. She is the author of two books which explore intersections between modern literature, disability studies and medical humanities: Disability and Modern Fiction: Faulkner, Morrison, Coetzee and the Nobel Prize for Literature (Palgrave, 2012) and Literature and Disability: Contemporary Critical Thought (Routledge, 2015). She recently co-edited a special issue of Journal of Literary and Cultural Disability Studies on disability and visual culture (Liverpool University Press, 2015).
She is committed to making connections beyond university settings and presenting her research in a range of different formats. Since being chosen as one of ten ‘New Generation Thinkers’ by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the BBC in 2013, she has made broadcasts for BBC Radio 3’s arts and ideas programmes Night Waves and The Essay, BBC Arts television, and given talks at the BBC’s Free Thinking Festival. Alice is currently PI on two Wellcome Trust grants which support the Northern Network for Medical Humanities and aim to foster connections between universities, arts and health organisations in the north.
