Teaching interests and research
My teaching interests lie in German culture of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries; German drama (including in performance if possible); Translation Studies - particularly 'translating culture' and literary translation; and, given half a chance, the Reformation, as well as all levels of language teaching. I have recently joined Warwick from Nottingham, where I taught a variety of modules on literature, translation, culture and history from the fifteenth to twenty-first centuries, including the Reformation to Revolution (Germany 1517-1848), Writing in Exile, Translating Culture, Literary Translation, The Fantastic in German Literature, with an occasional foray into the French dept to teach the French Revolution. I also helped to develop the Post-Beginners' language module at Nottingham.
My research began with my thesis and book on French and German Gothic literature, an area to which I am now returning after some years away.
I am also a translator from German and French, and have somehow ended up translating both nineteenth-century French melodrama and twentieth-century German exile literature into English.
Friday 11-12 or by appointment.
My work days are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.
