About me

My position at LSE involves teaching the five courses covering Literature and Comparative Literature which are available at undergraduate level, and which form a major component of the BSc Language, Culture and Society programme.

I specialise in nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first century English Literature, American Literature and Comparative Literature. My book-length publications include works on Henry James and French literature, the Russian dimension of the Irish playwright (and LSE founder) George Bernard Shaw, and the influence of Russian Literature upon British culture in the early twentieth century in From Orientalism to Cultural Capital: the Myth of Russia in British Literature in the 1920s (2017).  My most recent publication (2018) is the chapter on Ford Madox Ford's literary criticism. in the Routledge Research Companion to Ford Madox Ford (2018).  I am one of the editors of the ongoing Cambridge University Press edition of the complete fiction of Henry James.

About the Language Centre

LSE is a centre for the study of the social sciences and this is reflected in its Language Centre.

Our courses focus on language and society, encouraging you to learn how to use language in the contexts you would like to live, study and work in. We teach people to speak languages, but also teach about language (socio-linguistics and intercultural communication) and offer a range of courses on literature and society. 

We offer English for Academic Purposes programmes, BSc programmes a range of undergraduate degree courses that can be taken as part of a degree and a range of language options that can be taken outside of a degree programme. All programmes and courses relate language study and support to the fields of interest of social science students.
