Teaching allocation

I just received my teaching allocation for next academic year, my first teaching within the English Department at Warwick. I'll be running two seminar groups on Medieval to Renaissance English Literature, a primarily poetry course that runs from Sir Gawain and the Green Knight to John Donne, covering Canterbury Tales, Faerie Queene and that Shakespeare bloke along the way.

It's an ideal course for me to be teaching on. It's a first year module, which puts slightly less pressure on me, and it forces me to work outside of my primary research area while still having direct connections to it. I had worried that teaching Shakespeare, or a more general theatre course, would keep my CV rather narrow.

However, this does mean that I'll be spending my summer brushing up on medieval vocab. and re-reading  Spencer. Luckily, there's a nice Simon Armitage documentary showing on Thursday, which should break me back in gently.....


I’m Peter Kirwan, a final year doctoral student in the English Department at Warwick, and this is my PhD blog.

Conferences, reviews, articles, thoughts and links relating to my interests in the Shakespeare apocrypha, early modern drama, authorship and performance.
