“I cannot recommend Karin Speedy highly enough. She is a stellar researcher, teacher, writer and editor. She’s a great thinker with solid foundations and commitments in anticolonial/postcolonial and critical thought. She is (bonus) fully proficient in French as well as English.”

“Karin has been a major asset for Shima, the research journal that I edit. Since coming on-board as deputy editor in late 2019 her degree of commitment, reliability and personal quality control have enhanced the efficiency of the journal’s operation and have allowed me to diversify my work as editor, attending to many aspects that had been on-hold for too long. Her enthusiasm and work-ethic are exemplary and it has been a pleasure to work with her.”

Dr Estelle Borrey

“Karin was a dedicated supervisor who suggested interesting directions and approaches for my doctoral research. She was always supportive and understanding, sharing valuable insights on the quality of my work and the comments of my thesis examiners. As she is fun and great to work with, I would recommend her for any research or mentorship position.”
