The study of Literature and Culture is important, because it is through poems, essays, and novels that some of the deepest insights into the meaning and value of our lives and the world are transmitted. While sciences like Medicine teach how to preserve life, and Engineering how to make life more efficient and convenient, Literature is concerned with the knowledge of what our life means, and what it is to be here and human.
I moved from England to Japan in 2002 and have taught at universities in Fukuoka, Miyazaki, and Kyoto, before moving to Matsue. I have a PhD from Durham University, England, and specialize in the intersection of Literature and Philosophy, especially concerning British Romanticism. In my courses we will explore such themes as love, freedom, the human spirit, beauty in nature and in art, and such thoughts and feelings that move between life and death.
