Person

Before taking up the chair of English literature at Lund in July 2016, my academic career brought me from the National University of Ireland at Galway to the universities of Cambridge, Glasgow, York, St. Mary's, and Copenhagen. My research examines various aspects of the intellectual life and cultural history of Britain during the late eighteenth century and 'romantic' period. Current interests include the relationship between romanticisms and romantic nationalisms in Britain and the Nordic countries. In the longer term, I'm contemplating a book about romanticism and the weather.

I sit on the board of the Nordic Association for Romantic Studies and I am one of the editors of the Association's journal, 'Romantik: Journal for the Study of Romanticisms'.
