Biography

I arrived at UEA in 2012, having worked at Queen Mary, University of London, Birkbeck College, and the Open University. I teach very broadly across twentieth- and twenty-first-century literature, often helping students to explore the relationship between literature, history and politics. My recent books are A History of 1930s British Literature (Cambridge University Press, 2019) co-edited with Benjamin Kohlmann (University of Regensburg), and Red Britain: Writing the Russian Revolution in Mid-Century Culture (Oxford University Press, 2019).

You can read about my current research under the 'research' tab.

I have worked on the journal Critical Quarterly since 2010. I was deputy editor from 2015-2020, and senior deputy editor from 2020. I was elected to serve on the AHRC Peer Review College for the period 2020-23.
