Katherine Collins has held posts at UWE, Goldsmiths College, The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH) and Oxford’s Department of Education. Her interests include creative-critical research practices in education; critical pedagogies and epistemologies of the south; disciplinary edges and research cultures; and anti-extractive methodologies in education.
Current research projects include Ibali, which explores narratives of educational inclusion in Nigeria, South Africa and the UK via digital storytelling; and Liquid Voices, a multi-disciplinary collaborative hybrid text exploring the poetics of academic research. With Elleke Boehmer, she founded the Southern Lives Network in 2020. Their co-edited collection, Life-Writing and the Southern Hemisphere: Texts, spaces, resonances, will be published in 2024 by Bloosmbury Academic.
Her poetry has appeared in Finished Creatures, Bath Magg, The Rialto, Shearsman Magazine, Volume Poetry, Ink Sweat and Tears, Anthropocene, and the anthology Science of the Seas.
