Laura Swift

Assistant Editor

Higher Education


I have been part of the Editorial team at MUP since 2021, following a PhD in early modern English literature and critical theory at the University of Manchester. I commission books on Higher Education, with a focus on activism and critical university studies; I’m particularly interested in work on decolonisation and abolition, access and participation, pedagogy, policy, and the experiences of minoritised groups in the academy. If you have an innovative project that you’re interested in publishing with MUP, please get in touch to discuss your ideas.
