Teaching

My teaching experience spans multiple institutions across Canada and the United Kingdom.

At the University of Sheffield, I lecture and teach on modules such as Modern Literature and Contemporary Literature, and the postgraduate module Mid-century Modernism, in addition to supervising undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations. I currently convene the School’s MA Work Placement modules, which pair MA students with heritage and cultural institutions around the region. I am the primary supervisor for a PhD project, as part of a network funded by the White Rose College of Arts and Humanities, ‘Electronic Soundscapes’, between the Universities of Sheffield, Leeds, and York.

Previously, I’ve taught and supervised on a wide range of undergraduate ‘papers’ (a.k.a. ‘modules’ or ‘courses’) at the University of Cambridge. These include Literature Post-1830, Modernism and the Short Story, Contemporary Writing, Practical Criticism, and History and Theory of Literary Criticism.

In Canada, I’ve taught upper-class lectures such as Twentieth-Century British Literature at the University of Guelph. I’ve also convened online modules such as Introduction to Academic Writing (in which I oversaw ten teaching assistants and managed the course for 350 students worldwide) at the University of Waterloo’s Centre for Extended Learning.
