Current research projects and talks
See my 'Current research' page for information on my forthcoming publications, current projects, and upcoming or very recent talks.
I welcome enquiries from prospective PhD students interested in ecocriticism (especially climate change and literature), British Romantic women poets, or epic literature.
For a list of my current and past PhD students, see here.
I also have considerable experience as a PhD examiner, having been external examiner for fifteen PhDs in the UK, Ireland, Australia, and Hong Kong.
My research interests
Climate and literature
My research into climate and literature includes some of the earliest papers on climate fiction. I've published a monograph on climate fiction and a volume of essays on climate and literature, both with Cambridge University Press. I co-edited The Cambridge Companion to Literature and Climate and am writing The Cambridge Introduction to Literature and Climate.
Romanticism, gender, epic
My Romanticist research deals with issues of gender, genre, and poethood, exploring how women poets engaged with authorial norms.
