Postgraduate students

I will consider applications from students wishing to carry out research in creative writing, specializing in non-fiction, short fiction or poetry. I especially welcome innovative proposals that overlap with my own research interests.

Research interests

  • narrative nonfiction (esp. memoir, travel, illness)
  • short fiction & the prose poem
  • translation theory and practice 
  • comparative literature(s)
  • contemporary Hispanic American literatures
  • history and cultures of the Mediterranean

I currently supervise or co-supervise seven PhD students in Creative and Critical Writing.

I am interested in supervising PhD students in the areas of:

  • Narrative nonfiction
  • Short fiction
  • The prose poem
  • Comparative literature
  • Borges and Hispanic American literature
  • Translation studies
