Dr Joshua Powell


School of English, Communication and Philosophy

I came to Cardiff in 2017, having completed a PhD in English at the University of Exeter. My research focuses on the relationship between twentieth-century literature and psychology. Much of my work has focused on the writing of Samuel Beckett and I am currently completing my first monograph which considers Beckett's relationship with experimental psychology. Other authors that I work on include Gertrude Stein, Ann Quin and Philip Roth.

At Cardiff I currently lead a number of modules that take in the history of Gothic literature, and I also enjoy teaching on critical theory, twentieth-century literature and the relationship between literature and science.
