Dr Devon Campbell-Hall is an energetic, transatlantic lecturer who loves every aspect of teaching literature. She completed a PhD entitled 'Writing Asian Britain in Contemporary Anglophone Literature' at the University of Winchester, where she also earned an MA in English: Contemporary Literature. Her BA in English is from Chapman University in California. She was a key contributor to the development of Solent University's English degrees and now serves as the course leader for the BA (Hons) English degree.

Devon is a fellow of the HEA, a member of the Association of Commonwealth Language and Literature Society (Europe), a member of the National Association of Writers in Education (NAWE), and is actively engaged in presenting her research at international conferences. Academic publications to date include a co-authored student guide, peer-reviewed articles, book chapters and reviews of several books on various aspects of contemporary and postcolonial literature.

Regularly sought out as an inspirational speaker and workshop leader, Devon is passionate about widening participation in higher education, and has a genuine commitment to helping students – particularly those who have entered University via non-traditional means – to reach their academic potential.

Devon is delighted to consider PhD/MPhil/FYP students in the areas of postcolonial literature; disability studies; contemporary Anglophone literature and short stories (particularly Indian fiction in English); and minority American literature. 

Work in progress

Devon is currently working on a monograph, Writing Asian Britain, as well as research into how the Grand Tour is represented in children's literature.
