Teaching

I teach on a range of classes in Scottish and British literature from the end of the 19th century on. These include 'The Construction of Scotland' at level 2, 'The Literature of the First World War' at level 3, 'The Nineteen Thirties: Literature and Culture' at level 4, and a Masters class 'British Literatures 1880-1950'.

I have been external examiner on undergraduate programmes at the universities of Cumbria and Central Lancashire, and have been an external assessor on undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses at the universities of Dundee and Cumbria, and at Canterbury Christ Church University. I am currently external examiner on the MA (Hons) English (Scottish, Modern, and Contemporary literatures) at the University of Aberdeen.

Research interests

My research is mainly in 20th century Scottish and British literature and popular culture. Current research focuses on the First World War. I am working on a book, provisionally titled 'Scotland's War?: Scottish Literature and Culture 1914-1918'. This follows on from articles I have published in The Cambridge Companion to the Poetry of the First World War (2013), the Edinburgh Companion to Twentieth-Century British and American War Literature (2012, the International Journal of Scottish Literature (2010), and the Oxford Handbook of British and Irish War Poetry (2007).

I have written and co-edited four books, From the Line: Scottish War Poetry 1914-1945 (2014) (with Roderick Watson); Scotland and the Nineteenth Century World (2012) and Beyond Scotland: New Contexts for Twentieth Century Scottish Literature (2004) (both with Gerard Carruthers and Alastair Renfrew), and A Critical Difference: T. S. Eliot and John Middleton Murry in English Literary Criticism 1919-1928 (1998).

I have published essays on issues in Scottish literature and culture in a number of works, from the Oxford History of the Novel and the Cambridge History of Literary Criticism to the London Review of Books.

I recently completed the supervision of an AHRC-funded project, 'Ecloga Journal, Scottish Network of Modernist Studies Special Issue 2013', which was edited by Andy Campbell, and have been since June 2014 a strategic and academic member of the AHRC Peer Review College. I am a member of the School of Humanities Literature, Culture and Place research group, and of the War and Representation Network and the Scottish Network of Modernist Studies, and am a member of the committee of the Scottish Universities International Summer School and the Universities' Committee on Scottish Literature.

I have examined doctorates at the universities of Oxford, Glasgow, Kent, and Strathclyde.
