A large proportion of my activity as an academic teacher are diploma seminars. I have supervised around 150 master’s and bachelor’s projects; the topics of the theses written under my supervision could be used to tell the history of British literature, from Beowulf—through numerous projects on Geoffrey Chaucer, William Shakespeare, John Milton, Jane Austen, Romantic poets (Blake, Wordsworth, Keats, Shelley, Byron), Mary Shelley, Victorian fiction and poetry (Dickens, Collins, Emily and Charlotte Brontë, George Eliot, Stoker, Wilde; Robert and Elizabeth Browning, Tennyson, Hopkins, Hardy), H.G. Wells, Joseph Conrad, W.B. Yeats, E.M. Forster, T.S. Eliot, Virginia Woolf, D.H. Lawrence, Aldous Huxley, George Orwell, Samuel Beckett (drama+prose), C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Angela Carter—to the twenty-first century female novelist (Zadie Smyth, Monica Ali, Hilary Mantel) and Irish writers (Eoin Colfer, Colm Tóibín)

My other courses include:
