Samantha McCulloch

Samantha McCulloch is a doctoral candidate at the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis at the University of Amsterdam. Her dissertation investigates formations of subjectivity, possession and property in South Africa during the long nineteenth century, with particular attention to instances of self-making in the Xhosa cattle-killing movement, the Bleek and Lloyd archives and the writings of Olive Schreiner.

Her previous work drew upon ficto-critical techniques to critique whiteness and solipsism in J. M. Coetzee’s Boyhood (1997) and Joan Lindsay’s Picnic at Hanging Rock (1967). She has also published articles on contemporary art and curatorship in Third Text and Museum Management and Curatorship.
