Scholarly Interests

Bibliography, Eighteenth-Century British Literature, NZ Print Culture, Travel Writing

Teaching

Research and Possible Supervision

I have supervised work on editing poetry (Luke Shepherd); servants in Fielding and Smollett, eighteenth-century travel accounts, and NZ book history. I am also happy to supervise studies of travel accounts; NZ book history; eighteenth-century poetry or other literature, satire, most aspects of bibliography or editorial practice, and the use of computers in research or teaching.

Current Research

I am currently working on a book on the early publications of Alexander Pope.
