Corey WAKELING

Perth and Melbourne, Australia. Born in Lancashire, England.

My name is Corey Wakeling and I am a Lecturer in English and Drama at Kobe College. I received my PhD in Literature and Theatre Studies from the University of Melbourne in 2013. I specialize in the study of experiments in twentieth century and twenty-first century writing, particularly writing for performance. For me, ideas in the humanities are not simply theoretical, but are expanded by performance and study. The classroom is a privileged space of study. Teaching for four years at the University of Melbourne and a year at Deakin University in Australia has helped me develop student-centred teaching practices and creative classroom structures that students find encouraging and engaging.


In my experiences teaching primary school students, high school students, as well as university students in Japanese and Australian contexts, I have learnt that the classroom can be a space of variety and experiment. I am excited to accommodate the motivations of new students at Kobe College, from their cultural interests to vocational dreams.

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 PhD thesis "Samuel Beckett: experiments in insensibility" considered sensibility in crisis in the work of Samuel Beckett and problems for aesthetic interpretation as a way to understand the new sensory experiences of Beckett's writing and theatre. Although a special way of studying this single Irish-Francophone writer, I see techniques spanning readerly, dramatic, archival, and multimedia analysis in my approach as necessary to the study of English in the digital age. My hope is that students appreciate the "horizontal" aesthetic and ethical attitude this entails. That is, my work and teaching support the study of literature and drama amongst the student's experience, aesthetic tastes, pop cultural environment, and cultural sensibilities. This attitude sees genres and meaning horizontally, rather than in hierarchy. The political orientation of this attitude is pluralist, international, and hybrid.

Teaching should consider the interdisciplinary nature of English, a discipline which applies the many areas of the humanities to written works in English. I feel the specialist aspects of my research still follow this basic tendency of English blending the disciplines and pursuing common goals in the context of English-language works. Teaching high school students in a guest lecture for the University of Melbourne Winter School intensive, T.S. Eliot in my analysis became a cultural historian of a zombie modernity. This approach appealed to pop cultural sensibilities of teenagers whilst giving a research-based insight into Eliot's biography and Christian mystic imagination in The Waste Land.

My applied experience in creative and critical approaches to studying literature, drama, and poetry encourages a collaborative approach to teaching. Often, a lively critical environment of literary studies is in the company of a lively creative environment. So too will the future rely upon these collaborations between thinkers and artists. Students who reflect on the discipline of English within an international cultural sphere mindful of key issues and in the context of their own experience will benefit most from this education. The classroom is a primary space for this reflection. My research has this broad creative arts perspective in mind.
