Event Description

Malachi McIntosh is the Barbara Pym Tutorial Fellow in English at St. Hilda’s. Prior to joining St Hilda’s, Malachi was  editor and publishing director of Wasafiri, the magazine of international contemporary writing, and created its podcast, which he continues to host, Craft. Prior to that, Malachi co-led the Runnymede Trust’s award-winning Our Migration Story history education project; lectured at the University of Warwick, the University of Cambridge, and Goldsmiths, University of London; and worked for Teach First — initially as an English teacher in a South Croydon high school.

Malachi’s research is primarily focused on Caribbean and Black British writing, in particular writing produced in the 1950s–1980s. He is also interested in inter- and post-world-war-era writing from the French Caribbean, and broader diaspora, world literature, and postcolonial literary studies.
