Miss Isabel Sykes
PhD Student


As of October 2022 I am in my first year of study as an AHRC-funded PhD student at Brunel.

My doctoral project, funded by the Techne Doctoral Training Partnership, has the working title: 'Representations and subjective experiences of working-class women’s unpaid labour, feminist resistance, and post-work imaginaries'.

Previously I completed a funded MA in Contemporary Literature and Culture at Birkbeck College and a BA in English Literature and History at Newcastle University.

My work is interdisciplinary, with research interests centring around contemporary representations and lived experiences of class, gender, and labour.
