Public engagement

I was involved in the 2014 collaborative project "From a Cornish Window: Individual, Landscape, Community" (part of the nationwide AHRC-funded Being Human festival of the humanities) which aimed to use perspectives from literary studies and the humanities more generally to rethink relationships to space, place and environment (especially in Cornwall).

It involved an exhibition and trail at the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro, creative workshops with local schools, and a series of public talks. At the RCM, I delivered a lecture on 'Landscape and Lyric', offering an alternative history of Romanticism through depictions of Cornwall.

Contribution to discipline

I am the external examiner for the BA English programme at the University of Chichester.
