Research supervision

In literary criticism, I am open to supervising dissertations on Victorian and Romantic literature, with the exception of those focusing on gender studies and/or Oscar Wilde.  I welcome applications on medicine and literature, literature and the body (particularly the author's body), and contemporary and popular culture revivifications of the Romantic and Victorian periods.

As a creative writing supervisor, I am delighted to supervise in prose and poetry, with the exception of genre fiction (e.g., fantasy, science fiction).

My own critical approach is historicist, with a deep interest in cultural studies and close reading of primary texts.  I welcome projects that focus on these approaches.
