Hello, and welcome to my blog! (scroll down for latest posts). Here’s a bit about me, if you’re interested:
By day, teaching Romantic literature at Cardiff University and writing my first monograph, Romantic Onomastics: Naming and Identity in Britain 1770-1814. See here for my research page.
By night, crafting fiction and culinary treats. I wrote a novel a few years ago. It looks like this. Philip Pullman liked it. since then, I’ve been writing the second one – a twisted tale of treason, spies and guilty secrets, set in 1790s London. It’s nearly finished. I’m repped by Euan Thorneycroft at A.M.Heath.
I was a BBC/AHRC New Generation Thinker 2014-2015, and I’m pretty interested in public engagement. So there’s stuff up here about that too.
This site contains my archive of blog posts on; eighteenth-century literature and culture; being an Early Career Researcher in the UK; arts funding; the odd modern novel; and food. I don’t manage to blog as much as I’d like, so please forgive the odd lengthy hiatus.
Say hello on Twitter, and feel free to follow me if you don’t mind pictures of my cat.https://twitter.com/SMCoulombeau
