Paul Humphrey received his PhD in Modern Languages from the University of Birmingham (2013), and his research focuses on gender, sexuality and African-derived religions in Caribbean literature. His monograph, Santería, Vodou and Resistance in Caribbean Literature: Daughters of the Spirits (2019), was published in the Studies in Hispanic and Lusophone Cultures Series at Legenda (Cambridge, UK), an imprint of the Modern Humanities Research Association. Paul has published peer-reviewed articles in Sargasso, Studies in Comics, Journal of Haitian Studies, International Journal of Francophone Studies, Bulletin of Hispanic Studies and in the edited volume Capital Culture: Perspectives in Ethnic Studies II (2019).
