My research specialism is in Nineteenth Century Literature (Romantic and Victorian) with particular interests in poetry and textual process. For second year students I I convene the British Romanticism core course which runs for 22 weeks right across the year. In the third year I teach a number of specialist half unit courses drawing on my research expertise, including: "Victorian Popular Fiction" and "Where do Poems Come from?" At graduate level I teach on the MA in Romantic and Victorian Studies with a module called "On Location in the Lakes". I also supervise PhD projects on Romanticism, textual criticism and space and place in poetry.
