Led by Professor Graham Huggan, with co-investigators Dr David Higgins (University of Leeds), Dr Christina Alt (University of St Andrews) and Dr Will Abberley (University of Sussex), the project’s main aim is to produce a co-written book, contracted to Cambridge University Press, on modern British nature writing, but it will also involve a variety of academic and engagement activities working with partners including the Booth Museum and Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.
You will play a full role in the research and impact agenda of the project. You will work with Professor Huggan and Dr Higgins to organise the project conference in 2018 and will play a key role in liaising with project partners and ensuring that the project engages academic and non-academic audiences. You will also be supported to conduct your own related research and publication in ecocriticism and/or the environmental humanities.
You will have a PhD in English, with a specialism in ecocriticism and/or the environmental humanities. You will also have experience of conducting research and the ability to contribute to the research culture of the School and other project-related bodies at the University.
