Professor in the Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies at the University of Warwick.
My research is focused on poetry and poetics; ecology, religion & philosophy; plant studies; companion species; and affect theory. At Warwick, I convene the Philosophy and Literature program with Eileen John in the Department of Philosophy, and have a background in Critical & Cultural Theory and comparative literary studies.
With Mark Knight, I’m General Editor of the Bloomsbury series New Directions in Religion and Literature; and with Neil Badmington, co-edit The Year’s Work in Critical and Cultural Theory. I serve on the editorial boards of Literature and Theology and Literature Compass (Romanticism); and am a member of ASLE (Association for the Study of Literature & the Environment).
