I am currently researching in masculinities and contemporary film towards a monograph with Bloomsbury Academic. In 2014 I will also be writing a book on the history of science fiction in the 1960s, which will extend work already completed on New Wave science fiction and literary experimentation. I am also pursuing new developments in critical/creative practice.
I studied for my undergraduate degree in English and American Literature at the University of Warwick, took an MA in American Studies at the University of East Anglia, and completed my PhD at the University of Liverpool, in postwar American dystopian science fiction. I taught literature and film at NEWI in Wrexham and at the University of Chester before moving to Lancaster in September 2006.
