Research interests

For my current project see the Ocean Modern website. My research area is early to mid-twentieth-century literature. I have specialisms in:

  • Maritime literary studies
  • Periodicals and print culture
  • Transatlantic modernist and middlebrow cultures
  • Canadian studies

Ocean Liners

My project "Ocean Modern" is funded by an AHRC Research, Development and Engagement fellowship in 2023-24.  I'm investigating the powerful symbolism and contested meanings of the ocean liner in twentieth-century literature. I'm also exploring the liner as a space for literary activity: looking at reading, writing, printing and bookselling afloat. Public engagement work is arranged in partnership with Artemis Scotland, a heritage interpretation company. I am appearing in Sky History's "Secrets of the Lost Liners" series from 29 April 2024.

I've published two journal articles emerging from this research and am working on a book. I am lead supervisor for a PhD project on "Ocean Liners: Cultures of Promotion", funded by a Lord Kelvin Adam Smith studentship. I have given numerous talks and keynote lectures on ocean liners, some for academic and some for general audiences. In connection with my interest in maritime heritage, I am a member of the Education and Tourism Sub-Committee of the Friends of the TS Queen Mary, a Trustee of the Unicorn Preservation Society and a board member at The Shipyard Trust.

Editions

My edition of a 1929 novelThe Young May Moon, by Canadian-American-Norwegian author Martha Ostenso was published in 2022 by Borealis Press, and funded by a Carnegie Trust Research Incentive Grant. I have written the Introduction for a forthcoming edition of Sylvia Thompson's 1941 novel The Gulls Fly Inland for Handheld Press. Previously I wrote the Introduction for Handheld's new edition of Margaret Kennedy's WWII memoir Where Stands a Wingèd Sentry, published in 2021. Here is a video of the book launch. I also spoke at a public event on Kennedy organised by English P.E.N. I am a member of the Textual Editing Lab at the University of Glasgow.

Monographs

In 2016 I published my sixth monograph, Modernism's Print Cultures (Bloomsbury), with Mark Hussey. My previous books include two prize-winning monographs, Sophistication: A Literary and Cultural History (2010), winner of the European Society for the Study of English (ESSE)'s biannual book prize in English Literature, and Literary Culture and Female Authorship in Canada (2003), winner of the International Council for Canadian Studies' Pierre Savard Award.

Middlebrow, Modernist, and Magazines Research

In 2008, I set up the AHRC Middlebrow Network, which now has over 400 members. Several of my later projects developed from the Network: for instance, "Magazines, Travel and Middlebrow Culture in Canada", funded by the AHRC, and involving collaboration with the Canadian Writing Research Collaboratory (CWRC). The book emerging from this project, co-authored with Michelle Smith, appeared in 2015. One of the talks, focusing on fashion and given at the Tailored Trades network event in Exeter, is available online. A related project that I was a CI on is "Modern Magazines Project Canada", led by Hannah McGregor and funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Hannah and I, with Paul Hjartarson, edited linked special issues of two journals on the topic of "Magazines and/as Media." The issue of English Studies in Canada is now available open-access. I also held a British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship (2015) for a project on "Noël Coward, Print Culture and Popularity", which was centred on themes of cutural hierarchy.

In 2022 I contributed to BBC Radio 4's "Front Row", talking about Walton and Sitwell's Facade (1922). Here's a blogpost that I wrote for Anthem Press on the topic of middlebrow, and one from 2020 for the "Circulating American Magazines" project, on "What is a mass-circulation magazine?" 

I am co-editor of Palgrave's book series "Material Modernisms", and a member of the University of Glasgow's 'Modernism, Avant-Garde and Twentieth-Century Literature and Culture' research cluster. I am a patron of the International Magazine Centre.

Supervision

I am available to discuss potential PhD or masters projects in Canadian or American literature (especially of the early 20th century), middlebrow culture, periodicals, or maritime topics. 

I am currently first supervisor for Eamonn Connor's interdisciplinary project on ocean liners and leisure cruising (with Art History and Marketing). I am second supervisor for Kari Sund, working on the Hollywood novel, and Nadia-Terese Laguna Franks, working on post-truth fiction.

I have supervised 9 PhDs to completion as lead supervisor. Most recently, at Glasgow, I supervised Alexandra Abletshauser, working on Canadian fiction in the 19th and early 20th centuries. At the University of Strathclyde, where I worked from 2007 to 2017, I was lead supervisor for David Rush, for a PhD on Nancy Mitford; Rachael Alexander, whose thesis was published as Imagining Gender, Nation and Consumerism in Magazines of the 1920s; Zhen Liu, with a project on Asian-Canadian Literature which was published as several articles; Sarah Galletly, whose research was on work, class and gender in turn-of-the-century Canadian writing; and Emma Sterry, whose thesis was published as The Single Woman, Modernity, and Literary Culture. At Cardiff University I supervised Sarah Bruton's PhD on witches in twentieth-century writing, and Meichuen Wang's on Canadian historical fiction, and at the University of Liverpool I supervised Ashlie Sponenberg's thesis on British women's writing of the 1930s.

Teaching

In 2024 I was shortlisted for a Student Teaching Award for "Best Feedback".

My teaching specialisms include American and Canadian literature, nineteenth- and twentieth-century literature, and periodical studies.

I regularly teach a course on "Canadian Literature" that is available to Senior Honours or M.Litt students, and a block of seminars on the core course for the "American Modern Literature" masters degree.

At Masters level, I contribute to the "Modernities" core course and the "Encountering Environments" course. At Junior Honours, I have contributed to teaching on Modern Literature I: 1890-1945; American Literature I and II; and the "Readers" section of the core course. I have taught on Pre-Honours courses 2a: Writing and Ideology and 1b: The Novel.

I have contributed teaching materials online to the Winifred Eaton Archive project and the MLA Commons.
