Personal profile

Research interests

Dr Eleanor March is an interdisciplinary prison researcher, working across carceral geography, criminology, literary and cultural studies, and history. She researches cultural representations of the carceral, focusing on prisoner writing, literary and media representations of prisons, and prison history.

Her PhD thesis “Crossing the prison boundary: Prisoner writing as an act of translation” was an interdisciplinary study that employed concepts from carceral geography, literary studies, translation studies and criminology to analyse contemporary writing by UK prisoners. Additional research interests include suffragette prisoner writing, and the representation of prisons in the novels of Margaret Atwood.

She is currently working on the ESRC-funded Persistent Prisons project, which considers the ‘persistence’ of Victorian prisons in the contemporary UK, exploring how and with what implications Victorian prisons continue to operate, and whether their operation should continue.
