About Min

Lecturer in English


Min teaches first year students about eighteenth-century literature on the 'Writing the Modern World' module, and also 'Rakes, Rascals and Rudeness', a more focused second-year eighteenth-century module on eighteenth-century politeness (and its opposite). She also teaches a level three module on the history and practice of satire, called 'Laughing Matters': in this we study literary name-calling from ancient Rome to Jonathan Pie. She also convened the first-year theory module for some years, and with her interest in rhetoric and philosophy, teaches the MA module 'Poetry and the Modern Self', beginning with Hobbes and the wicked Lord Rochester and heading towards twenty-first century neo-materialism and ecocriticism. Min is happy to be contacted about the supervision of doctoral study in eighteenth-century print culture and literature from high to low. She is also keen to supervise work on significant intersections between philosophy and literature, in any era from the early modern to the present day. Min has supervised as Director of Studies two doctoral dissertations, and has acted as second supervisor on three other successful doctoral projects: she has also been External Examiner for one doctoral thesis and Internal Examiner for three.
