Personal profile

I joined the department in 1995; before that I was Lecturer in English at the University of Leicester, and associate lecturer at Cardiff University. I studied for my first degree at the University of Southampton and was awarded a BA (Hons) in English Literature and Language in 1989. Subsequent to this I was granted a Marion Johnson Fellowship and spent the next year at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, USA. My doctoral research was undertaken at Birkbeck College, University of London, and I completed my thesis on William Golding in 1995. My current teaching focuses on feminist and psychoanalytic theory along with twentieth-century and contemporary literature. I have worked in a supervisory capacity with PhD students working on Janet Frame, the Robinsonnade, Carson McCullers and Virginia Woolf.
