William Blake: The Man & The Music crew

I joined Lincoln in 2015 as Head of the School of English and Journalism. Previously I was interim Director of the School of Writing and Journalism at Falmouth University and Professor of Blake Studies. Prior to that I was Head of the Department of Writing and course leader for Journalism. I also worked for more than fifteen years as a journalist and magazine editor, specialising in technology and computer journalism on titles such as PC Advisor, MacWorld and Digit.My main research interests are the reception of William Blake in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, as well as developments in digital publishing and the impact of technology on journalism. I have published widely on these subjects, as well as on magazine journalism more generally.
