Lecturer in Twentieth and Twenty-first Century Literature, Durham University

My current project 'Environments of Care in the Age of Modernism' is an interdisciplinary study of nutritive spaces in the early twentieth century, including of hospital wards, phenomenological ‘life-worlds’, the weather system and the ‘biosphere’. The aim is to explore how the globalising environmental discourses that developed throughout the modernist period came to be reflected in the terms of literary intimacy.
