Daniel Cordle has worked at NTU since 1998. In 2009 he was made Reader in English and American Literature. He is an expert in nuclear and Cold War literature and culture and teaches in these areas, in American literature and more generally across the curriculum.
Daniel's principle research interest is nuclear and Cold War literature, on which he has published extensively. His book, States of Suspense: The Nuclear Age, Postmodernism and United States Fiction and Prose (Manchester UP, 2008), was described as "insightful and compelling" (Technology and Culture), a "brilliant analysis of North American literature during the Cold War" (BSLS) and as opening up "rich, important pathways for future nuclear criticism" (Modern Fiction Studies). He is currently writing a book about the nuclear 1980s in British and North American culture.
Daniel has also published a number of pieces about literature and science, including a monograph, Postmodern Postures: Literature, Science and the Two Cultures Debate (Ashgate, 1999).
