I’m a Classicist who works primarily on the secular prose literature and history of the fourth century AD. I teach Roman History at the University of Southampton, where I’m part of a team that’s recently launched a new Ancient History BA Programme, bringing the teaching of the ancient world at degree level back to Southampton after a hiatus of 30 years. Additionally, I’m a Visiting Research Fellow in the School of Classics at University College Dublin, and a Member of the Ancient World Research Cluster at Wolfson College, Oxford.

I am Associate Professor of English at the University of Stavanger, Norway. I am currently working on a book project for Routledge on beards and masculinity in American literary history. Previously, I was an Irish Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow at University College Dublin, Ireland (2015-2017). My project focused on the transnational flâneur and masculinity in early American Literature. My PhD thesis (Queen’s University Belfast, 2013) was published as Masculinity in Contemporary New York Fiction with Routledge in 2015. I have published a range of articles on such topics as New York flâneurs, Freud and masculinity, fatherhood, and the sociological value of studying men and masculinities.
