Adèle Oliver is the Project Support Assistant and Knowledge Exchange Officer at the LSE International Inequalities Institute, working on showcasing the Institute’s research portfolio to a wide of audiences and stakeholders to promote change. Adèle’s master’s dissertation in Postcolonial Studies as SOAS morphed into her first book ‘Deeping It: Colonialism, Culture and Criminalisation of UK Drill’, an exploration of UK drill and its entanglement with histories, technologies and realities of colonialism, anti-Blackness, moral panic, and more. As a Black Brit of Jamaican descent, personal interest and experience drives Adèle’s intellectual commitment to unravelling histories and epistemologies using an acutely critical lens. Her work, in its recognition of overlooked perspectives, identifies and amplifies side-lined voices in art and popular culture.
