Research interests

My key research interests include the early modern period/the 'long eighteenth century' in English culture, and the history and writing of English Protestant dissenters from 1600-1800. Other areas of research interest are the history of the book in early modern England, and studies in genre and narrative theory.

Teaching specialisms

I have been teaching and lecturing in the further and higher education sector for twenty years; my special areas of teaching expertise are focused on English literature and culture from 1660-1800. I have been Module Leader for all of UH's Literature modules covering texts from 1550-1800, including both of the core modules for Level 5 (Year 2) students
