Dr Jeremy Scott

Senior Lecturer in English Language and Literature

School Director of Internationalization

Office: Cornwallis Central 128

Office Hours: Wednesday 12.00-13.00


I teach and research on the border between language and literary studies. Specifically, I teach in the areas of literary stylistics, narrative and narratology, critical linguistic, literary and cultural theory, and also teach creative writing. My current research interests are in fictional technique, literary representations of dialect, the relationship between narratives and identity and stylistics-based approaches to creative writing and creativity in general. I have published on contemporary British and Irish fiction, on literary stylistics, travel literature, and also my own creative work.
