Dr Dom Davies joined City as a Lecturer in English in April 2018 and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in May 2020. He teaches across the BA in English as well as the department's new MA in English. He is committed to teaching English Literature in a way that is politically informed, socially inclusive, and critically generative.
Dom's research focuses on the broad themes of colonial and postcolonial literature, imperial and post-imperial cultures, and the toxicity of whiteness. He has also published in the field of urban cultural studies and written about visual responses to migration and refugees, especially in comics and graphic narratives. More generally, his research focuses on the relationship between infrastructures, borders, urban planning, the built environment, and literary and cultural narratives.
Dom represents the School of Arts and Social Sciences on City's Race and Equality Charter Self-Assessment Team. He also sits as Co-Chair on the Student Attainment Project Management Group.
