Research interests

My research is inherently interdisciplinary and collaborative. I explore ideas of embodiment and subjectivity through considering the interrelations and intersections between literature, culture (especially film), philosophy, medicine, and science.

James Joyce and the Phenomenology of Film, my first monograph, was published by Oxford University Press in 2017. I am now working on a new monograph, provisionally entitled Multifocal Modernism: Literature and Non-normative Vision, c. 1890-1950. My current research project, Colour Blindness in Literary and Cultural History, c. 1860-1940, will feed into my new monograph and produce a number of shorter public-facing and academic publications.

I lead Bristol's Senses Cluster, a newly-formed mutlidisciplinary network of academics and practitioners interested in sensing, the senses, and the sensory. The Cluster is hosted in the University's Centre for Health, Humanities and Science, and funded by the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute for Health Research. Please get in touch if you would like to be added to our mailing list.

 

Supervision

I would be happy to hear from postgraduate students wishing to pursue research in any of my areas of interest: James Joyce; the relationship between literature and early film; literary modernism and medicine; literature and phenomenology; literature and the senses; literature and embodiment.
