Dr Daniel Matore

Personal profile

I am currently Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow at Royal Holloway, where I am undertaking a research project provisionally named Contrapuntal Modernism: Fugal Thinking in Twentieth-Century Literature. Prior to this appointment, I was Lecturer in English at St. Anne's College, Oxford. Funded by the AHRC, I completed a DPhil at New College, Oxford in 2017, entitled 'Experimental Typography in Twentieth-Century Poetry', which I am currently converting into a monograph for OUP, entitled The Graphics of Verse. I read for a BA in English at Homerton College, Cambridge from 2008-2011, where I won the Betha Wolferstan Rylands Prize, and graduated with a double first. I proceeded to complete my MPhil in Criticism and Culture at King’s College, Cambridge, graduating with a Distinction and specialising in the work of Gertrude Stein, Basil Bunting, and Ezra Pound. I worked at the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon between 2012 and 2013 as a lecteur d’anglais, where I supervised French undergraduates on a variety of modern British and American writers and gave classes on literary translation. In 2015, I was awarded a Joan Nordell Fellowship at the Houghton Library, Harvard University in order to conduct archival research on ‘The Genesis of Modernist Typography’. This fellowship led to me being commissioned by academics at the Editorial Institute at Boston University to contribute a chapter on modernism and punctuation for a multivolume book entitled Punctuation in English, which is under consideration at Cambridge University Press. I am the Editor of the Cambridge Humanities Review, and I have articles published or forthcoming in Textual Practice and Modernism/ modernity
