Who will you learn with?

I'm a Lecturer at the University of Newcastle. A literary historian by training, I'm especially interested in the ways the material forms texts take (print, manuscript, digital) shape their meanings.

My teaching background is in history: I am interested in global histories, histories of the family, histories of health and medicine, and in particular, the history of mental health and 'madness'.
