A Daily Dose of Me

Monday, September 17, 2012

I am pleased to be featured on Brandy Schillace's blog feature, the Daily Dose. Brandy researches in the field of literature and the medical humanities. The Daily Dose is an attempt to showcase the work of fellow academics, by running a series of Q&As with them. Although I am not working centrally within the medical humanities but more in the digital humanities, I contributed some thoughts on topics ranging from cybergothic and game studies, to the links between critical and creative writing.

As regular readers will know, I have several different university roles as a teacher, researcher, and for that matter writer of The Pequod. I had not realised until doing this interview that there is actually quite a consistent tenet underlying all of my activities: the belief that whilst literature and criticism matters, we need also to explain to the widest possible audience how and why it does. 

Even if you're not interested in what I have to say on such matters, do check out Brandy's website as an innovative resource for networking with other scholars in the medical and related humanities.
