On 12 December 2019, I gave an inaugural lecture, celebrating my promotion to Professor in 2017. The lecture focused on a reading group I ran in 2016 with IDEAL Community Action, a charity in Barton Hill, looking at Seamus Heaney’s poem ‘Digging’ and, through this, explored themes about literature, communities and universities.

I will be posting a link to an audio recording of the lecture here soon.
