Dr. Glyn White
School of Arts and Media
Senior Lecturer in Twentieth Century Literature and Culture
I have worked at the University of Salford since 2006.
Areas of research
Literature, Poetics, Film, Postmodernism, Visual
I am currently convening five modules: Narrative Fiction and the Novel, Anthony Burgess and his Contemporaries, Popular Fictions, Postmodernism and Visual Text.
I am Programme Leader for English and Film.
My research interests include the presentation of text and how the presence of the book informs readings of fiction. I have published work on Laurence Sterne, Samuel Beckett, B. S. Johnson, Christine Brooke-Rose, Alasdair Gray and Mark Z. Danielewski. I am currently researching the use of page design and graphic elements in contemporary American fiction.
I also research on film and television and my interests in this field range from comedy to crime genres.
I would be happy to supervise work on any of the topics listed above.
