On leave Summer Term 2012
Convenor, Pathway in Modern Literary Theory for MA in Comparative Literary Studies. I teach options for the MA on Literature and Philosophy and Freud.
My key interests are in psychoanalysis (I am a practising clinician as well as an academic), literature and philosophy (especially Blanchot, Adorno and Benjamin), and American literature since the mid-nineteenth century (especially Melville, James, Stevens and contemporary fiction), and much of my work is at the interface of these areas. I’m currently working on a book to be published by Granta called The Private Life, about privacy in psychoanalysis, literature and contemporary culture.
