Dr Sandeep Parmar is Senior Lecturer in English Literature at the University of Liverpool. Her research interests are primarily British and American women’s writing of the early twentieth century, modernism, women’s autobiographical writing, innovative/avant-garde twentieth-century and twenty-first-century poetry in English, women’s writing, feminist literature and the literary archive.
Her books include: Reading Mina Loy’s Autobiographies: Myth of the Modern Woman (a critical study of the modernist writer Mina Loy’s literary archive), a scholarly edition of the Collected Poems of Hope Mirrlees, and two books of her own poetry: The Marble Orchard and Eidolon (the latter is a rewriting of the myth of Helen of Troy in modern America). Her Collected Poems of Nancy Cunard will appear from Carcanet in 2016.
Her essays and reviews have appeared in the Guardian, The Los Angeles Review of Books, the Financial Times and the Times Higher Education.
She is writing a novel, which is partly set during India’s Green Revolution in the 1960s, for which she has received a British Council/Arts Council International Artist’s Development Fund Grant.
