Research at St Andrews

Rosa Campbell


Research overview

Rosa received her MPhil in Literatures of the Americas from Trinity College Dublin in 2015 (with Distinction), and prior to that her MA (Hons) in English from St Andrews in 2014. She was awarded the Daniel Rutherford Doctoral Scholarship and the AD Links Foundation Postgraduate Scholarship in 2016 for her PhD at St Andrews.

Her doctoral research is on the women of the New York School of poets – including Barbara Guest, V. R. Bunny Lang, Bernadette Mayer, Anne Waldman, Alice Notley, and Eileen Myles – and is concerned with the intersection between poetry and visual culture, the role of female friendship and collaboration, queer identities and gendered power dynamics, as well as examining the concept of the poetic ‘school’ itself. She is especially interested in the poetics of colour, the relationship between poetry and social media, and the transgressive feminist potential of sidelined women writers to disrupt received notions of the canon.

Rosa is supervised by Professor Don Paterson, and she is also the Managing Editor of The Scores.
