    Personal Statement

    I work on contemporary literature and creative writing.

    Ted Hughes and Trauma (Palgrave 2016) explores the poet's ideas on humanity, nature and nationhood alongside theorists such as Jacques Lacan, Roland Barthes and Cathy Caruth.

    My debut novel, Nothing, is forthcoming from W&N (June 2021). I am currently researching 'capitalist realism' in twentieth-century and contemporary literature, as well as working on my own fiction.

    Academic support and feedback hours: Tuesdays & Wednesdays 3-4 on Teams (email me first) or by appointment.
