Teaching

As a teacher, I am also always a learner – I benefit greatly from the different perspectives I gain through engaging with my students. I enjoy teaching subjects I am less familiar with as much as I enjoy teaching my areas of expertise.

Most recently, I led a course on early cinema and art for Exeter College’s Summer Programme. The images above were made by my Exeter students; we recreated the Surrealists’ ‘exquisite corpse’ game in order to better understand the philosophy behind the artists’ and film-makers’ creative practices.

Previously I have taught modules, for Oxford University, on modern literature, critical theory, and film theory. I have also supervised MA and third-year BA dissertations on a range of topics, from ‘Joyce and the Internet’ and ‘H.D. and Embodiment’ to ‘Angela Carter and Pornography’ and ‘Lolita, The Virgin Suicides and Teenage Sexuality’.

For summer school and private tutorial students I have taught subjects as diverse as Shakespeare, Political Philosophy, Epistemology, Creative Writing, a specially tailored Liberal Arts programme, and Leadership & Teambuilding skills.

I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

I hope to share some teaching resources on this page in due course.
