Dr Bhagya Casaba Somashekar
Lecturer (Education) in English

Gaskell 138


I teach contemporary, postcolonial, and postmillenial writing at Brunel University. My research specialisms include representations of political crises, cities of the global south, cosmopolitanism and migration, speculative fiction, and literature and the Anthropocene. 

I completed my DPhil in English at the University of Oxford in 2021. My dissertation was on representations of the Indian Emergency (1975-77) in Indian writings in English. I also have MA and MPhil degrees in English from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. My academic work has appeared or is forthcoming in the Journal of Postcolonial Writing, Wasafiri, and Writers Make Worlds. I am currently working on a monograph based on my dissertation.
