Academic Profile

Nuraliah is a Lecturer in the Language and Communication Centre (LCC). She obtained her Ph.D. in English and Creative Writing in 2015. Her thesis is a work of creative piece that highlights issues such as marginality, isolation and socio-historical traumas through the writing practices and considerations of contemporary mythopoesis. That work eventually resulted in The Gatekeeper, the novel which won her the Epigram Books Fiction Prize in 2016. Her writing, both fiction and non-fiction, has been published in several journals, magazines and anthologies. These include Quarterly Literary Review Singapore (QLRS), Budi Kritik, Perempuan: Muslim Women in Singapore Speak Out, and Singa-Pura-Pura: Malay Speculative Fiction from Singapore. Her research interests are in the practices and modes of narratives and storytelling, especially in the way they construct and deconstruct cultural and political imaginaries. Her creative writing often centres on subjects of family, community, society, religion, and inequality. Outside of research and writing, Nuraliah enjoys video gaming and walking.
