Professor Harriet A.B. Tarlo PhD

Professor of Ecopoetry and Poetics


About

I am a poet and academic who has been practising, publishing and teaching since the early nineties. I have taught at Sheffield Hallam since 2007 and was for three years the course leader for the MA Writing. Since 2015, I have convened the Creative Writing Masterclass series bringing writers and professionals from the writing world to Hallam to contribute to teaching and give stimulating and informative talks and readings.  My English Literature PhD was on the modernist poet H.D., and I retain an interest there, recently publishing an essay on Modernist Women Poets with Palgrave and one on H.D. with Classical Receptions. Currently I focus on my own poetry and critical work and review on contemporary poets, particularly ecopoetics. I have published eight poetry books, four artists’ books with Judith Tucker, and edited a well-received anthology, The Ground Aslant: Radical Landscape Poetry Anthology (Shearsman 2011). Since 2007 I have collaborated with artists to work on exhibitions and artists’ books involving text and image. Since 2011, I have been working on place-based collaborative projects with the artist Judith Tucker who works at the University of Leeds. I am also involved in a number of projects working with the public and academics from all disciplines on environmental threats and extinction.  I have three main areas of interest within writing poetry and poetry criticism: gender, landscape and environment/eco-criticism and experimentalism/avant-gardism. I am also interested in performance and poetry readings and integrate these into the modules I teach. These interests feed into the modules I teach at Hallam. I have been involved in validating a number of hybrid modules (in which students work both creatively and critically in a particular area) and this is my main area of interest in undergraduate teaching. In particular I deliver modules on “Writing and Environment” and “Experimental Writing”. I also supervise PhD and M.A. students in critical and creative work relating to these areas of interest and am always keen to meet potential research students wanting to work in these areas.

Postgraduate supervision

I am currently supervising the following PhD research students: Joanna Dobson who is working on a Creative Writing project on Nature Writing, Memoir and Trauma; Chris Howard who is working on Southern Studies and Posthumanism in relation to contemporary American fiction; Erin Kavanagh whose creative project works across disciplines to explore Climate Change through the figure of the mermaid and Krystle Morley who is working across Geography and Humanities on mapping and modelling Radical Water Futures in the Sheffield region. At Sheffield I have supervised to completion Andrew Jeffrey's poetry project on encounter with the non-human animal; Bernadette O'Toole on Mallarmé and the expanded field of painting and Rachel Franklin on eroticism and cultural renewal in Salvador Dali's writings. I have supervised two M.A.s by research in the ecocritical field. At previous institutions, I supervised three Phds to completion, on environmental poetry and ecocriticism; Djuna Barnes and psychoanlytic models of urban space.

I have supervised to completion two Creative Writing PhDs on environmental poetry and one academic PhD on the modernist writer Djuna Barnes.
