Pat Noxolo, Lecturer in Human Geography at University of Birmingham.

Pat Noxolo’s research is at the confluence of international development, culture and in/security, and uses postcolonial, discursive and literary approaches to explore the spatialities of a range of Caribbean and British cultural practices. Recent work has focused on theorizations of space in the novels of Wilson Harris, Maryse Condé and Earl Lovelace; on Caribbean laughter and materialities; on African-Caribbean dance as embodied mapping; and on securitisation in British development and immigration/asylum discourses.
