Ivan Phillips

Ivan Phillips is Programme Leader for the Interactive Media and Screen Cultures programme in the School of Creative Arts at the University of Hertfordshire, where he also teaches on a range of other courses. His background is literary (he completed a PhD on the poetry of Paul Muldoon in 1998), and his research interests span such subjects as Romanticism and its contexts, Modernism into postmodernism, 20th century poetry and poetics, and experimental fictions from Laurence Sterne to new media. His recent publications have included papers on Wyndham Lewis, David Jones and Dylan Thomas, and he is currently working towards a study of poetry and technology. He is also vaguely pondering a radical new theory of media which he would like to call 'unsettlement'...
