Research

I research the Gothic; I'm particularly interested in the American Gothic, and the British Gothic in the twentieth century. I also work on twentieth century New Zealand literature. Recent work has treated carnivalesque writing, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Frank Sargeson, Alan Garner, Robert Aickman, Aleister Crowley and folk horror.

I'm very happy to receive enquiries for PhD topics in Gothic studies, and associated areas of twentieth century and contemporary literature.
