Dr Ruth Bush


I am on Research Leave in 2017/18. 

I teach literature (medieval to 21st century), cultural studies, and French language at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. In addition to teaching Y1 core units (Shaping France and Reading Literary and Visual Cultures), I convene units on Francophone African Literature (Y2), Journeys Through Poetry (Y2), Narratives of Migration (Y4). I contribute to postgraduate units on Global Cultures of the Book and Cultural Encounters. In 2016/17 I was Programme Director on the Foundation in Arts and Humanities, a 1-year course designed for students without conventional academic qualifications and providing access to undergraduate degrees. I am committed to widening participation initatives in Bristol.
