Ph.D. Newcastle; M.A. Zurich; B.A. Hamburg
I joined the English and Creative Writing 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.
I am now Head of the Schools of Humanities and Performing Arts and Law, Criminology and Government. Together, the schools consist of over 30 programmes across the areas of Criminology, Creative Writing, English, Politics, International Relations, History, Art History, Anthropology, Sociology, Law, Acting, Drama, and Music, and are home to 2000 UG, PGT and research students.
