Dr John Clarke

Research supervision

I am open to discussing research proposals on any relevant subject related to my research expertise in poetry and pose nonfiction. I am especially happy to consider working with candidates with interests in the following areas: poetry and ecology; poetry and science; poetry and place; the poetry of rubbish; poetry and the sea; poetry and visual arts (particularly Modernism).

Other areas include lifewriting and the role of creative writing in public and/or participatory art.
