Hannah Van Hove

Hannah Van Hove is a writer and researcher based in Brussels. She completed a PhD on the fiction of Anna Kavan, Alexander Trocchi and Ann Quin at the University of Glasgow in 2017 and is currently conducting a postdoctoral research project on the work of British post-war experimental women writers at the Vrije Universiteit Brussels. She is Chair of the Anna Kavan Society, co-sits on the editorial board of the Journal for Literary and Intermedial Crossings and is a member of the artistic research group Deep Histories Fragile Memories. She is co-editor of British Experimental Women’s Fiction, 1945-1975: Slipping through the Labels (Palgrave, 2021) and has published articles and reviews on British avant-garde fiction as well as translations of Flemish modernist Paul van Ostaijen’s poetry. Her creative writing has appeared in places including Adjacent PineappleGutterForum+ and MAP magazine. At the moment, she is working on a creative-critical project which combines a reflection on the experiences of doing archival research with memoir. At the heart of this project is the question of how to take care in representing the lived experiences of the people she’s working on.
