About me

M.A., B.A. (Wales), Ph.D. (Leeds), Dip.Ed. FEA I was appointed to Stirling in 1970, some three years after the University had opened. Before that I took my B.A. and M.A. at Cardiff, and Dip.Ed at Exeter. I later obtained my Ph.D from Leeds. Since arriving at Stirling I have taught and continue to teach undergraduate courses in Shakespeare, Elizabethan and Jacobean Drama, and Renaissance Literature, and in Critical Theory. I was also one of the founder members of the Department of Film and Media Studies, and was Chair of the committee when it became a full department of the University in 1985. I have delivered lectures on Renaissance Drama in a number of countries across the world, and have examined courses and postgraduate dissertations in a number of University English Departments. I have also successfully supervised a number of Ph.D theses in Renaissance Literature, Modern Drama and Critical Theory.
