Dr. Ramone joined Nottingham Trent University in October 2012. She is course leader for English, and teaches postcolonial literature and theory on undergraduate modules including Postcolonial Texts. She is module leader for the popular second-year module, Black Writing in Britain. She teaches on the Master's in English Literary Research and supervises postgraduate students.

Before joining Nottingham Trent University, Dr Ramone was Senior Lecturer in English Literature at Newman University College, where she developed and taught an online MA in Colonial and Postcolonial Literature. She has also taught at Loughborough University and the Open University.

Dr Ramone’s current research project examines instances of reading in postcolonial literature from Cuba, South Asia, Nigeria, and in Black British writing, and on the local literary marketplaces of those regions. Her monograph, Postcolonial Literature and the Local Literary Marketplace: Locating the Reader, is contracted with Palgrave Macmillan for publication in 2019. Jenni Ramone has recently edited The Bloomsbury Introduction to Postcolonial Writing: New Contexts, New Narratives, New Debates (2017).

Other research projects have included the monographs Postcolonial Theories (Palgrave, 2011) and Salman Rushdie and Translation (Bloomsbury, 2013). Dr Ramone has coedited a double special issue of the journal Life Writing, with a focus on women's life-writing and diaspora in postcolonial contexts.

Dr Ramone supervises research and welcomes prospective postgraduate research students in postcolonial literature and theory, especially those undertaking research on postcolonial resistance, activism, and consciousness; migration; reading cultures, communities and contexts; and neocolonial contexts.
