Hello, welcome and thanks for visiting my website. I started this blog because of my interest in the relationship between literature and the environment. Professionally, I’m a Reader in Literature at the University of Essex, UK. Our campus is particularly noted for its trees and wildlife, so I am fortunate to direct a Masters Degree in environmental studies: the MA Wild Writing: Literature and the Environment. I’m also Honorary Fellow in Literary Studies at the University of Wyoming. Wyoming has come to be my second home, and I divide much of my time between East Anglia and the western USA. Thinking about those two very different locations informs a fair amount of the posts on this site. I also write about Romantic and Scottish literature, and transatlantic literary culture. Other posts relate to those interests.
