Timothy C. Baker

Senior Lecturer, Scottish and Contemporary Literature, University of Aberdeen

Timothy C. Baker received an AB in Cognitive Science from Vassar College in 1999 and a PhD in English Literature from the University of Edinburgh in 2007. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities from 2007-08, and joined the University of Aberdeen in 2009. His research and teaching includes is centred on Scottish and contemporary literatures, but includes smatterings of nineteenth- and twentieth-century literature, and dollops of texts earlier still. At the moment he is most excited about combining queer, posthuman, and feminist theories in order to talk about animals in contemporary Scottish, Irish, and other literatures.
