About me

I joined UWE in 2003 and have since taught on a range of modules across first, second and third year. For several years now I have been the module leader for the first-year English core module as well as for modules on twentieth-century and contemporary literature.

My research centres on contemporary historical fiction, which was the subject of a monograph entitled The Contemporary British Historical Novel: Representation, Nation, Empire (Palgrave 2009). I have just completed a book on A.S. Byatt for Palgrave (2013). I have published several academic articles and book chapters on the historical novel, Scottish literature, and colonial narratives. I have also presented my work at numerous academic conferences in the UK, Europe and the United States. My next project is a study of the use of colonial landscape in contemporary fiction set in the nineteenth century.
