Dr Alan Marshall

In 1991, as a student in the Department of English and Related Literature at the University of York, England, I completed my doctoral thesis on the relationship between European romanticism and modernist poetry. I was then lucky enough to join the same department as a lecturer. In 1995 I moved to the Department of English at King’s College London as a Lecturer in American and Modern Anglophone Literature. At King’s I became one of the founding members of the Department of American Studies, which was established in the year 2000, and which was the first such department at any of the colleges of the University of London. I became the Head of Department in 2004. My main areas of interest are modern poetry, literary and philosophical relations, and the history of European intellectuals in America. I have just completed a book on American experimental poetry and democratic thought.
