Alex Warwick works on the literature and culture of the 19th century.

I took my undergraduate degree and PhD at the University of London (BA Hons) First Class in English 1984, PhD in English 1989). I also have an MSc in the History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine from Birkbeck College, London(1999). I have been at Westminster since 1991 and I am now Head of the Department of English, Linguistics and Cultural Studies. I teach on undergraduate and postgraduate modules in nineteenth-century literature and culture. My research interests are in the field of nineteenth century studies, particularly the fin de siècle. I have published work on Oscar Wilde, on Gothic, on representations of the Whitechapel Murders and on Andrew Lang.

My research interests are in the field of nineteenth century studies, particularly the fin de siècle. I have published work on Oscar Wilde, on Gothic, on representations of the Whitechapel Murders and on the Victorian critic and journalist Andrew Lang. My current work is on archaeology and the Victorian imagination.

I have supervised several PhDs on literary and cultural topics including May Sinclair, Eliza Haywood's Jounalism, the avant-garde, Gothic, the Victorian explorer Mary Kingsley, nineteenth-century women scientists and race in Victorian fiction. I would welcome applications from students wishing to pursue graduate research on aspects of nineteenth-century literature and culture.
