I'm an Associate Professor in the School of Literature, Language and Media (SLLM) at Wits University in Johannesburg. I'm also currently head of the English Department. 

 

I research, I write, I teach: South African literature, Shakespeare ... and pretty much anything in between. I am lucky enough to be a part-time arts critic and brazen enough to be a current affairs commentator too. 

 

This website is a portfolio of my work. It's also a space for me to share information about projects I'm involved in - and, occasionally, to post about running. I like to run.
