Overview

I am a Senior Lecturer with research expertise on Shakespeare in education, in and beyond the UK. A co-authored book on Shakespeare in East Asian Education was published by Palgrave, with UCHIMARU Kohei, Adele LEE, and Rosalind FIELDING in 2021. My first monograph, Shakespeare Valued, was published by Intellect in 2015. Full details of my research publications, including book chapters and articles, can be found on this site under the tabs 'my research' > 'research outputs'. 

 

I am interested in the teaching of literatures, in or translated into, English more generally, in terms of policy, pedagogy, and representation of literature teaching in popular culture. The scope of my interest includes teaching literatures in and beyond English-language environments. In 2022-23, I was the Megumi Visiting Professor in the English Department at Kobe College, Japan. I am interested in the topic as it relates to various sectors: schools, higher education, further education, theatre and heritage education departments, other creative industries and the media.

 

In 2011, I became the Founding Editor of the British Shakespeare Association's Teaching Shakespeare, a cross-sector magazine for Shakespeare educators internationally. I oversaw the publication of 21 freely-available volumes, with readers in over 60 countries, before taking up the Lead Editorship of the peer-reviewed international journal Jeunesse: young people, texts, cultures in 2021. Jeunesse was founded at and run from the University of Winnipeg, Canada, before joining the prestigious journal section of University of Toronto Press in late 2021.

 

My editorship of Jeunesse reflects, and contributes to, my emerging reputation for research on young adult (YA) literature and culture, specifically the gothic. I am especially interested in contemporary YA vampire literature's reworkings of Shakespeare, particularly twenty-first century retellings of Romeo and Juliet, and its representation of sexual consent and violence in relation to recent feminist activism internationally. In 2022, I won an Impact Accelerator Award to create a  bilingual podcast on YA vampire fiction, consent, sexual and relationships violence (watch this space for links to the podcast in 2023).

 

What unites my diverse research interests in English and Education are my theoretical and conceptual frameworks, and research methods. These consistently draw on literary criticism; critical theory; cultural studies; literary, content and discourse analysis to analyse texts and other qualitative data (interview transcripts, posts on social media sites, and survey data, for example).

 

I created the FutureLearn Pictures of Youth MOOC, a freely-available online course, exploring children's visual culture in picturebooks, comics, television and film with Dr Clémentine Beauvais in 2018. It has had over 15,000 participants in four years, with above average retention. I also enjoy researching, teaching and disseminating my work internationally, in person, with extensive experience in East Asia.

 

I am a Senior Fellow of the UK’s Higher Education Academy (now Advance HE) with a Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PGCAP), a higher education teaching qualification, from the University of York in 2013. I am an experienced research supervisor (see PG section below for a list of my previous PhD students and my supervisory interests). I was awarded UK Graduate Council for Education (UKGCE)-recognised research supervisor status in 2019.

 

I am interested in supervising PhDs on Shakespeare in Education in the UK and internationally, as well on the teaching of literature more generally in and beyond the UK, in and beyond the English-language environments. I engage with these topics in terms of policy, pedagogy, and their representation in popular culture and on social media. I work on these topics as they relate to various sectors: schools, higher education, further education, theatre and heritage education departments. As a researcher and the lead editor of the peer-reviewed journal Jeunesse: Young people, texts, cultures, I am interested in supervising PhDs on young adult literature. I am most interested supervising PhD projects where the theoretical/conceptual frameworks and research methods are drawn from literary criticism, critical theory, cultural studies, literary, content and discourse analysis. N.b. These are not funded PhD opportunities.

  

To give prospective applicants an idea of the sorts of PhD projects I supervise, some of my previous supervisees (at the University of York) include: *Daniel XERRI. Lead supervisor with Dr Nicholas McGuinn. Passed without corrections. January 2016. Poetry in Malta. *Chelsea SELLARS. (née Swift). Supervisor. Passed with minor corrections. July 2016. Children’s reading identities in North Yorkshire. *Paulina BRONFMAN COLLOVATI. Lead supervisor with Prof. Vanita Sundaram. Passed with minor corrections. Shakespeare for human rights in the UK.
