Professor of English and Creative writing, Lancaster University

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.
