I came late to university teaching, since I entered academia as a mid-life career change after fifteen years in academic publishing. I’ve taught with the UK’s Open University, and many European universities. I had a stint as a Teaching Fellow at the University of Reading in 2017, teaching Modern Scottish Fiction, The Business of Books, and poetry for beginners.
As well as running my publishing company, the Handheld Press, I also teach academic publishing to doctoral students at Reading, and give guest lectures on aspects of twentieth-century publishing, most recently at the Institute of English Studies, and in 2018 at University College London.
I taught a MA module for several years at the University of Paderborn in Germany, most recently on Reading Disability (2015), Gender and Science Fiction (2016) and Alienation: An Introduction to Science Fiction (2017).
