Dr Humaira Saeed currently teaches on Postcolonial Texts and Reading Gender and Sexuality and American Literature at Nottingham Trent University. Saeed completed her PhD at the University of Manchester in 2012. Her research is primarily concerned with how cultural texts navigate the ongoing effects of imperial occupations, through a discussion of the gendered experience, performance, and imposition of nationhood. Saeed maintains a scholarly and activist interest in transnational feminism, and the ways in which queer modes of belonging become asserted through racialised attachments to the nation-state.
In collaboration with Centre for Critical Theory, University of Nottingham.
