Modernism, the avant-garde, and post-modernism; psychoanalysis, philosophy, and critical theory; transatlantic literary studies; poetry, the lyric subject, and autobiographical constructions.  My recent book, American Modernism's Expatriate Scene:  The Labour of Translation, explored expatriation, translation, exoticism, multilingualism, and constructions of native and foreign in Ezra Pound, Henry James, Gertrude Stein, and Jack Spicer, among others.  I have also examined similar questions, along with the issue of subjectivity, in the work of Samuel Beckett.  My current research focuses on various twentieth-century elaborations of a poetics of interference, often as articulated through reflections on the local.  I am happy to hear from potential doctoral students who feel their project falls within my areas of expertise.

Jon Mee, BA (Newcastle-upon-Tyne), PhD (Cambridge) - Professor

Romanticism, literature and politics in the 1790s and after, William Blake, contemporary Indian writing in English. My publications include Dangerous Enthusiasm: William Blake and the Culture of Radicalism in the 1790s (1992) and Romanticism, Enthusiasm, and Regulation: Poetics and the Policing of Culture (2003). I have just edited an 8-volume selection of trials for sedition and treason (1792-4) with John Barrell. My work in the Romantic period often returns to the complex of ideas surrounding literary and print culture more generally in an emergent democratic society. The fascination in the period for me lies in the fact that many of the issues that continue define and trouble modern democracies first took shape there.  I currently hold a Philip J. Leverhulme Major Research Fellowship to work on a project entitled 'The Collision of Mind with Mind': Conversation, Controversy and Literature 1780-1822, which will investigate the evolution of the idea of 'the conversation of culture' for the Romantic period. Looking at a similar set of issues from a much more detailed historical perspective, I am  also completing a book on attempts to bring into being a literal republic of letters in the early 1790s under the working title 'the laurel of liberty'

My particular research interests include theories of the audience, space, popular culture, parody, adaptation, and comedy, and I am as interested in ‘Shakespeare’ as a 20th- and 21st-century cultural phenomenon as I am in Shakespeare the dramatist. Publications include Popular Shakespeare: Simulation and Subversion on the Modern Stage (Palgrave 2009), a handbook on The White Devil (Palgrave 2011), and articles on Shakespeare on television, constructions of ‘Shakespeare’ in theatre reviewing, and the performance of Shakespeare’s clown and fool roles. I am currently working on a practical research project with the theatre company The Pantaloons (for whom I also direct) and a third book for Palgrave, Shakespeare in Practice: The Audience. I regularly lead practical workshops on Shakespeare in performance at conferences and elsewhere.
