University of Sussex, l.gallon@sussex.ac.uk

I am a Research Associate at the University of Sussex (Brighton, UK) where I am also Editor-in-Chief at Excursions Journal. I am currently working on a monograph on contemporary short fiction by postcolonial and migrant women writers in North America (Palgrave, Palgrave Studies in Contemporary Women’s Writing).

In the past few years I have had the opportunity to undertake a research placement at the British Library to assess their holdings in terms of North American migrant narratives, to publish articles in cultural magazines (including Archivoz and Voice), and have presented work at national and international seminars and conferences.
