Nicky is a cultural critic who writes and speaks on a range of arts and culture topics. She has a Master's in contemporary literature and culture from UCL, and her academic research focuses on theories of identity, femininity, grief, the fragment, and translation. She is particularly interested in interdisciplinarity and tackling questions of form, and her work often has an experimental bent. Nicky is also a big fan of pop culture and the "lowbrow", and can usually be found on Twitter writing long threads about Taylor Swift and Caroline Calloway. She has a newsletter where she writes about everything from Star Wars to modern art (sometimes both at once).
