Ph.D. Newcastle; M.A. Zurich; B.A. Hamburg
I joined the English and Creative team at the University of Plymouth in 2010. Since then I have developed a number of new modules, including ‘Gothic Fictions: Villains, Virgins, Vampires’, and ‘Reading Jane Austen: then and now’. I have supervised undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations as well as ResM and PhD theses on a range of topics relating to Romantic and Victorian literature. I welcome PhD and ResM applications in the areas of nineteenth-century literature and book history in particular.
My research focuses on Romantic and Victorian fiction, principally the history of the book, library history and reception studies. My publications include books and essays on the afterlives of Jane Austen, Walter Scott, George Eliot, Edward Bulwer-Lytton.
Since 2016, I have been Head of the School of Humanities and Performing Arts, a school consisting of over 25 programmes across the areas of Creative Writing, English, History, Art History, Anthropology, Acting, Drama, and Music, and home to 1000 UG, PGT and research students.
