Paul Baines is a professor in the Department of English. He joined the department in 1990 as an eighteenth-century specialist and works largely in the early modern and long eighteenth century periods. He has published eight books and over 60 articles and chapters. He is currently working on early modern satiric writing by women, on the publisher Edmund Curll, the Liverpool-based radical poet Edward Rushton, and the pillory as a metaphor for satire.
