Who am I?
Hi, I am Cheraine Donalea and I am a doctoral candidate with the department of Media, Culture and Communications at NYU. I'm born and raised in London with Windrush gen grandparents. Currently living between London and New York, my research interests reside in British cultural studies, black studies, visual culture and sound studies. My dissertation (in work) explores British issues of race, class and national identity through an analysis of Brexit and Grime music.
Formerly, I worked, for over ten years, in the fashion & clothing industry in product development and garment technology roles, for recognizable brands such as Puma, River Island and The White Company. I have always been a creative person and see my approach to academia as intermeshing my love of the visual and philosophical word. I hold a Masters degree in Cultural & Critical Studies from the University of Westminster and a Bachelors degree in Fashion Design from the University for the Creative Arts (Rochester).
