I am a literary scholar with teaching and research interests in British and American literature of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, focusing in particular on
- literary modernism
- poetry and poetics
- relationships between literature and music
- Welsh writing in English
I am a Fellow of the English Association, and President of the Robert Graves Society. My role at Sheffield Hallam University is Deputy Head and Head of Academic Development in the Department of Humanities.
I produced and directed the second British staging of Ezra Pound's first opera Le Testament for the York Festival, part of which was subsequently released on the Other Minds CD of Pound's music Ego Scriptor Cantilinae. I have written extensively on British and American poetry, and the interrelationships between music and literature. My edition of Robert Graves's War Poems was published by Seren in 2016.
I welcome applications from PhD students on Ezra Pound, Robert Graves, twentieth-century British and American poetry, war poetry, relationships between literature and music; and twentieth-century Welsh poetry written in English.
