Jamie Redgate grew up on the north edge of Scotland. He moved south to study English at the University of Strathclyde, and from there to the University of Glasgow to do an MLitt in American Studies and a PhD in English Literature, which was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and completed in 2018. The resulting book, Wallace and I (2019), is now available in paperback from Routledge.

Jamie teaches, or has taught, on 'The Novel and Narratology', 'Writing and Text', and 'American Literature 1' and '2' at Glasgow, and he has lectured on topics as varied as Authorship, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Illness and Narrative, Consciousness and the Novel, Pynchon, Shelley, Dickens, and Wilde. In 2022 Jamie joined the team which runs the English Literature module for Glasgow University's Widening Participation Summer School.

Jamie is currently working on a second monograph, tentatively titled Meatfiction: Humanism, Animals, and Veganism in the Contemporary Novel. His essays have been published by Cambridge University Press and Routledge, and in the Encyclopedia of Contemporary American Fiction 1980-2020, Electric Literature, Unwinnable, Extra Teeth, and elsewhere. Jamie's fiction has been published twice by Gutter: The Magazine of New Scottish Writing, longlisted for the Blinkpot Award, won third prize in the Imprint Writing Competition, and been chosen as the “Best of 2021” by The Rush. In 2022 he was longlisted for the prestigious Moniack Mhor Emerging Writer Award.
