BA (Hons 1) USyd. (2000); MPhil USyd. (2003); PhD Cantab. (2007).
I am an Associate Professor in English in the School of the Arts and Media. I joined UNSW in 2008, as the holder of a Faculty Postdoctoral Fellowship. I was appointed a Lecturer in English in 2010 and then awarded a three-year ARC Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2011, for a project on the cultural archetype of the Fall in modernist poetry ($257,000). I was Acting Director (2014) and then Deputy Director (2016) of the Centre for Modernism Studies in Australia at UNSW, and since 2013 I have been a co-editor of Affirmations: of the modern, an open-access journal of modern literature and culture. In 2021, Affirmations became the official journal of the Australian Modernist Studies Network.
