RoleSenior Lecturer in English
I have worked on the intersection of psychoanalysis, interest in the supernatural at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th, and new technologies. I have also published on popular culture and film. My current project, about representations of adolescence in literature and culture, is tentatively titled Keep your back to the Future: Adolescence and Anachronism.
