I’m Anindita. I’m a doctoral candidate at the University of Neuchâtel’s Institute of English Studies where I research place and poetics in twentieth century American literature and teach undergraduate creative writing.

In 2016 I co-created and launched Summer of Darkness, an iPhone/iPad app that tells the story of Byron and the Shelleys in Switzerland, when Mary Shelley began to write Frankenstein. The app is a digital humanities project that performs an archive of material in “real” time 200 years later.

I’m also a young adult writer who’s represented by Caryn Wiseman of Andrea Brown Literary Agency.

You can find out more about me on Twitter. For more information on my academic or professional background, check out my LinkedIn.

Here are a few photos from my life in Switzerland that show why I study the relationship between place and literature.
