Writer Tom McCarthy in conversation with Dr Julia Jordan (UCL English Literature).
Dr Julia Jordan
Dr Julia Jordan is Associate Professor of English Literature. Her research has largely focused on chance, late modernism, the avant garde of the postwar period, and experimental writing more broadly. She is interested in aspects of theological and phenomenological literary criticism and theory, including the work of Jean-Luc Marion, and particularly in the light of the poetry of various writers from Hopkins and Empson to Peter Larkin and R. F. Langley. Her current project, Arborealism, is about the notion of the post-secular pastoral, and how this might be deduced by thinking about the representation of trees in poetry.
