Personal profile


In addition to teaching widely across a range of periods and topics, I have primary responsibility for teaching eighteenth-century literature at Ulster.
My research interests include Jonathan Swift, eighteenth-century Ireland, and the representation of the long eighteenth century in modern writing, art and screen media.
I have supervised postgraduate projects on a variety of topics including waste theory, the eighteenth-century Huguenot journalist, bookseller and publisher Jean-Pierre Droz, on David Hume and eighteenth-century fiction.
