Amanda's research interests include comedy, postcolonial international relations theory, resistance, and subjectivity particularly in the context of the African continent. 

Her current doctoral research deals with what stand-up comedy in Zimbabwe can tell us about resistance and subjectivity. Through immersive fieldwork into stand-up comedy as a culture the project particularly explores the ways in which the comedian, audience and stand-up sets operate politically. This project is supervised by Dr. Carl Death and Dr. Aoileann Ní Mhurchú.
