research

I’ve been writing about humans and nature, ecocriticism, the contemporary British novel and contemporary non-fiction for over a decade.

I blog about my research, talks and publications on this site.

I completed my dissertation, Ecocriticism and the Contemporary British Novel in 2012. In 2018, my monograph Climate Crisis and the Twenty-First-Century British Novel was published.

I’ve written articles on urban nature in fiction and non-fiction, polar landscapes, the challenges the contemporary novel poses to ecocriticism,  the relationship with nature that ‘real’ food suggests, floods fiction and econarratology. I’ve given talks on floods, gender and walking, econarratology, ‘real’ food and other topics.
