Dr Oliver Langmead

Lecturer in Creative Writing

Research Interests

I write fantasy and science fiction.

I use my research to challenge form and genre, producing both commercial prose novels and hybrid verse-novels. Some of the themes my work has addressed include: beauty / ecology and extinction / nonhuman voices / anthropomorphism / terraforming / mythological retellings and adaptations / utopias and dystopias.

I also work in science-based creative non-fiction. In 2018 I was the writer in residence at the European Space Agency’s Astronaut Centre. My research in this area covers human space flight, human enhancement and ecological philosophy.

Some of my projects also engage with writing for games. In particular – video games, board games and pen and paper RPGs.
