Accepting PhD Students
I would be very happy to talk to prospective doctoral researchers interested in any of the following areas:
Literary linguistics: stylistic applications of Text World Theory and Cognitive Grammar to literary discourse and reading; cognitive poetics; pedagogical stylistics; stylistics of poetry; stylistics of children’s literature; poetry and wellbeing/bibliotherapy; First World War literature.
Language and literature in education: applied cognitive linguistics; studying fiction; discourses about English in educational settings; integrating language and literature; reader response theories and education.
If you made any changes in Pure these will be visible here soon.
