Staff Research Interests

Our staff have research interests and expertise in all major areas of Literary Study and Creative Writing.

My main areas of interest are the writing of poetry, Contemporary British and Irish poetry, the teaching of creative writing and the inter-relation between modern European thought and contemporary poetics.

I have two research concentrations: the Second World War Gothic of the British home front, and twenty-first century Gothic approached through a medical humanities lens. Both strands of my research are concerned with ethical witness in response to individual and collective suffering. My current research projects include a monograph on contemporary Gothic and critical medical humanities; research on literary representations of chronic pain beyond traditional illness narrative prose memoir forms; and a project examining Second World War home front representations of combatants and refugees as spectral figures, liminal and vulnerable, drawing on archives of refugee memoir and spiritualist activity.
