Irish literature and culture, 1850 to the present

I lead the module in twentieth-century and contemporary Irish literature, which surveys novels, poems and plays by writers including James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, Edna O'Brien, Seamus Heaney and Eimear McBride. I contribute lectures and seminars on Irish literature and culture to other modules, including Ireland's Battle for Ideas and Ireland: Political, Social and Cultural Geographies.

Modern and Contemporary Literature in English

I also teach on English literature modules, including Modernist Literature 1900-1945: my lectures explore the relationship between literary modernism and empire and literary modernism and performance. I am in the process of developing a new interdisciplinary module called 'Writing for Radio: Broadcasting in Twentieth-Century Britain and Ireland'. This will focus on broadcast writing in the period 1930-1960 by the likes Virginia Woolf, George Orwell, Dylan Thomas and Elizabeth Bowen.
