I'm Professor of English at the University of Oxford.

My research interests cover a range of topics in the 20th and 21st century, with some look back to the 19th century. I'm particularly interested in modernist literature and culture in early film and early film theory, in the history of psychoanalysis and in modernist fiction. My current project is on the concept of rhythm across a range of artistic disciplines.
