When I was a visiting Erasmus lecturer at Tartu, Estonia, they made me this nice poster.

As well as running my publishing company, the Handheld Press, I’ve kept up my teaching, lecturing on twentieth-century publishing at the University of Reading, the Institute of English Studies at the University of London and 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).

My newest teaching activity is with Books@Work, which sends university lecturers into the workplace to lead small-scale, informal book group sessions based on a short story  and how these reflect experiences in the workplace. In my first session I worked with fourteen international staff from a company with no connection whatsoever to literature, on Orwell’s essay ‘Shooting an Elephant’. We discussed it for an hour and a half, and the time just zipped by, a very enjoyable experience for us all.

Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss how I can work with your students.
