About me

Ed Charlton is a British Academy Postdoctoral Research Fellow at LSE Cities. His current project is entitled ‘Metropolitan Melancholia: Articulating Loss in the Contemporary City’. Comparative in its ambitions, this project will examine key sites drawn from within the deracinated inner urban centre of present-day cities. He first joined the LSE in 2015 as a Mellon Fellow in Cities and the Humanities, before spending a year as a Lecturer in Postcolonial and World Literature at Queen Mary, University of London. He holds a PhD in English Literature from the University of Cambridge, which was funded by the AHRC, and an MA from King’s College, London. He is particularly interested in non-fictional modes of representation, negative affect, and postcolonial urban culture.
