Dr Amber Jenkins is currently managing the HEFCW-funded Civic Mission project, which aims to examine how the University of South Wales is supporting its community by promoting social cohesion, cultural innovation and active citizenship. She joined USW in December 2018, after undertaking a PhD in English Literature at Cardiff University. Her thesis focused upon the work of Virginia Woolf; it explored how her textual practices (writing, editing, hand-printing and binding) enabled her to situate her fictions within the context of twentieth-century visual and material culture.
She taught on the Year One English Literature programme at Cardiff University from 2015- 2017.
Alongside her PhD research, she worked as an Impact and Research Assistant for her PhD supervisor, Dr Becky Munford, on her project ‘Women in Trousers: A Visual Archive’.
I am currently project managing the HEFCW Civic Mission Review, which aims to highlight how the University of South Wales is shaping its own sense of ‘Civic Mission’.
Alongside this, I am working with Dr Louise Bright in the co-ordination of the Wales Women in STEM Network.
Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA).
