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 most recent 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 with international staff from an engineering company, discussing Orwell’s essay ‘Shooting an Elephant’, and Malamud’s short story ‘Rembrandt’s Hat’.

In addition I give lectures on publishing practice to publishing students.

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