External Activities

I am on the Editorial Board for Taylor and Francis' Home Front digital archive project 'War, State and Society' (www.warstateandsociety.com), and consulted on design and teaching tools, was interviewed at the National Archives for short videos about the records, and contributed an essay about how the archives can be used to inform teaching and learning. See interviews with me about the archives at http://www.warstateandsociety.com/Overview/Videos and go to http://www.warstateandsociety.com/Overview/Subject-Essay-Abstracts to read my essay about how these archives can help us to read literature from the Second World War.

 

I have given a number of public talks about my research, including on art and neuroscience as a panel member of the event ‘Art in Mind’ (November 2016) for the Dragon Hall public debate series in Norwich; annual lectures for University Campus Suffolk on literature and psychoanalysis from 2010-2013; talks on the politics of literature and of the short story for the Norwich Progressive Media Conference; annual talks on gender and emotion organised by UEA’s Feminist Society and Student Union Women’s Officer. In 2011 I was interviewed for UEA’s MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) ‘Preparing for University’, available as a six week free online course since 2012. In 2011 I was also interviewed for the documentary ‘Brontës in Context’, Train of Thought Productions (2012). As part of a resource pack for students about university-level literary study I discuss why Charlotte Brontë’s representations of emotion should not be read psycho-biographically (www.trainofthoughtproductions.co.uk).

 

I have been a peer reviewer for Textual Practice since 2008. More recently I have reviewed manuscripts for Wasafiri, for Review of English Studies, and for Feminist Anthropology.
