Personal profile

Biography

I have spent most of my career at the University of Roehampton. I became Professor of English in 2007 and since then I have been Director of the Centre for Research in Romanticism, and leader of the ‘Romantic Illustration Network’ https://romanticillustrationnetwork.wordpress.com/events/). The network has recently produced a volume of essays, Romanticism and Illustration (Cambridge University Press, 2019) which I co-edited with Susan Matthews and Mary L. Shannon. I was President of BARS (British Association for Romantic Studies) from 2015 to 2019.

Though I have worked on many areas of British literature, most of my research now focuses on the radical politics and visual culture of the period 1750-1850, especially political caricature. I established a new paradigm for caricature studies in Romanticism and Caricature (Cambridge University Press, 2013) and my recent book The Rise of Victorian Caricature (Palgrave 2020) fills a gap in our knowledge of the evolution of graphic satire.

In addition to my monographs Bloody Romanticism (Palgrave 2006) and The Revolution in Popular Literature (2004), I also co-edited Spain in British Romanticism (Palgrave, 2018) and The Gordon Riots (2012).

My research has been supported by awards from the AHRC, Leverhulme, British Academy, Research Society for Victorian Periodicals (RSVP) and many libraries and collections including the Lewis Walpole, Beinecke, Huntington, Harry Ransom, and Wilhelm Busch Museum of Caricature. 

I am an enthusiastic participant in Erasmus staff mobility exchanges and in recent years I have visited Stockholm, Cadiz, La Rioja and Lisbon. In April 2019 I gave a series of lectures hosted by the University of Tapei, Taiwan, and in October 2019 I went on a lecture tour of Japan at the invitation of the Japanese Association of English Romanticism. 

I welcome applications for research supervision in any of my areas of expertise. 

Here is a list of my principal publications, excluding reviews.
