Jean Morris

Jean Morris is a PhD researcher in English Literature at Nottingham Trent University, and is funded by the Vice Chancellor’s Research Scheme. Her project is concerned with the gendered body between borders, exploring the opaque ways by which it confirms and resists the power structures of its day. In this sense, she is concerned with the biopolitical body and what might be seen as its riposte, abjection. As part of her research and to illustrate its findings, Jean is re-creating (in words) a sea-journey, taken by a Spanish Jewess in 1492 after the Edict of Expulsion.
