Professor Adam Watt


My teaching reflects my interests in the developments in nineteenth- and twentieth-century prose fiction and poetry. As well as language teaching I offer a second-year option entitled ‘Telling Stories: Narrative Strategies in Nineteenth- and Twentieth-century Fiction in French’, focussing on Zola, Rodenbach and Beckett. I also offer a final-year option on Proust’s A la recherche and have taught critical theory and literary translation at MA level. In April 2014 I won the Students' Guild Award for 'Best Research-led Teaching' in Modern Languages and in 2017 was nominated as Best Lecturer in Modern Languages.
