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. I’ve worked a couple of times so far with international staff from an engineering company, discussing Orwell’s essay ‘Shooting an Elephant’, and Malamud’s short story ‘Rembrandt’s Hat’.

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