ABOUT ME

I’m University Lecturer in Twentieth-Century Literature at Oxford, and Tutorial Fellow at Merton College. I was one of the founders of the British Society for Literature and Science; I’ve served as its Secretary (2006-09) and Chair (2009-12), and I’m currently its Treasurer; in 2012 I organized its 7th annual conference.  From 2008 to 2011 I was an editor of The Review of English Studies.

I have recently completed a critical guide to Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway (Palgrave, 2015).  Current research projects are (i) an edition of Woolf’s Night and Day for the Cambridge Edition, which needs some final revisions before going into production, and (ii) articles or a book on science, poetry, and intellectual specialization in the period 1919 to 1939, which will include chapters on Herbert Read, Michael Roberts, William Empson, and Hugh MacDiarmid.

WHO I’M NOT

I’ve never written any bible-study guides or works of theology: far from it; that’s Michael Whitworth (no H.) of Dallas, Texas. I’m not a dermatologist in Wyandotte, MI, nor an anaesthesiologist in Indianapolis, nor have I ever been the Principal of the Wren Academy.  Although I endeavour to combine a devilish charm with infectious lyrics and melodies, I’m not from Athens, GA, and I’ve never released an LP.
