Expertise: Literary Theory
Dr Samuel Halliday
In my recent work I survey Anglophone and other literature of the early twentieth century, focusing on the sounds this literature represents and the other arts (especially music) with which it is engaged. Other interests more broadly include nineteenth-century American literature, modernism and history of the body. In my current and future research, I will focus in detail on the writings of Ralph Ellison. This work will continue to explore issues relating to sound and sound technology, and will also pay more sustained attention than my previous work to the theory and practice of cinema.
Dr Peter Howarth
Twentieth-century poetry, particularly modernism (Eliot, Auden, Stevens, Moore), WW1 poetry, and poetry in performance (theatre, confessionals, liturgy, avant-gardes, soundtracks, pop).
Dr Angus Nicholls
My overarching area of expertise is German literature and philosophy. Specific projects include a study of the relations between literary criticism and scientific method in nineteenth-century Britain and Germany. Another area of interest is Germans in Australia during the nineteenth-century, examined in book chapters and journal articles on Ludwig Leichhardt and Carl Strehlow. I am also interested in Goethe, theories of myth and German thought from 1750 until the present.
Dr Shahidha Bari
I am currently writing about clothes and philosophy. I work widely across the fields of literature, culture and politics. I lecture on Romanticism, and have previously written about the poet, John Keats. My recent work has considered the relationship of Islam to the West, specifically in the eighteenth-century. She has interests in modern art, architecture and design.
Dr Samantha Mcbean
My work is situated in feminist and queer theory, focused on contemporary literature, media, and culture. I have a particular interest in exploring questions of time. Focused on platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, and Tumblr, as well as on representations of digital culture in contemporary writing by women, I am currently exploring how the temporalities of new media remediate feminist and queer communities, histories, intimacies, and affects.
