I live in Gloucestershire. Before retiring, I was Director of Public and Professional Programmes at the University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education. I’m President of the English Association and series editor of Cambridge Contexts in Literature. My recent publications include ‘World and Time: Teaching Literature in Context’ (C.U.P. 2009) and ‘Extramural: Literature and Lifelong Learning’ published by Lutterworth Press in March 2012. I’m a trustee of the Kempe Trust, and write a Kempe blog about my research into the stained glass of Charles Eamer Kempe and his Studio.
