Ph.D., University of Melbourne

I received my PhD in English and Theatre Studies from the University of Melbourne in 2013 for a thesis on key modernist writer, Samuel Beckett. I have subsequently developed a critical corpus concerned for the most part with experiments in twentieth century and twenty-first century writing, particularly writing for performance. For me, the humanities are not simply a disciplinary and theoretical sphere, but also a constantly changing environment of performance, inscription, and interaction. The classroom is one extension of that. My engagement with the humanities is at once as an interdisciplinary critic and as a writer. Teaching for four years at the University of Melbourne and a year at Deakin University part-time in Australia before joining Kobe College in 2015 has helped me to develop student-centred teaching practices and creative classroom structures that I think students find encouraging and engaging. I hope that in my classroom students will discover new forms of invention, criticism, and inquiry.

Performing text

  • There are separate genres for performing text as poetry or as theatre. In twentieth and twenty-first century writing, new genres and new distinctions blur these distinctions and produce new ones. The digital age poses special problems to questions about presenting poetry. New research of mine considers Australian theatrical innovation in drama by poets. It considers how to read these innovations in how language maps the performance of these texts. In the classroom, questions about how poetry can be performed illuminate broader questions about genre and performance.

Affect studies

  • How is feeling represented and structured in a poem, a prose work, or a play? At one level, affect studies returns to questions of the reader's emotional reactions in literary theory, questions which were rejected by early twentieth century literary criticism. But, affect studies returns to the reader's emotions as a register of textual phenomena. So, rather than encourage students to rely upon individual opinion, the study of affect in a literary work can instead encourage students to explore criticism of feeling. The study of feeling can encourage research independence in tandem with learning skills of logic and socio-historical reasoning in the context of literary studies.

Poetics

  • New poetic methods are illustrative ways for understanding the history of literature as a series of events in textual change. My research considers the sensory implications for readers and spectators when radical change takes place in textuality. In the classroom, poetics can help students understand that the popular novel, for example, is a hybrid genre of narrative poetry, news journalism, and the poetic epic, popularized by the availability of print media since the Renaissance. So, poetics is part of the history of the novel. Alongside history, poetics helps students to understand what has changed in language and text over time.

研究室紹介

My applied experience in creative and critical approaches to studying literature, drama, and poetry encourages a collaborative approach to learning. I think that a lively critical environment of critical inquiry also means a creative and inventive environment of discussion. Students who reflect on the discipline of English within a transnational cultural sphere, mindful of key issues, ethics, and concepts in their context of study as well as their own context, will benefit most from such an approach to education. My research has this broad creative arts perspective in mind and one that I hope to inspire in the classroom.
