I was born a dairy-farmer‘s son in 1984, the year of watching and listening. And so on. It seems to me that things got complicated after that. I once went to The Purbeck School, where I learnt to fight and play and loathe bigotry. It was not a “specialist science college” then, but all the more arts and crafts.
Years later, in 2012, I completed my PhD thesis at the London Consortium and a version of this research, Waste: A Philosophy of Things, was published in 2014. I was Assistant Editor at Pluto Press for some years before joining Durham University’s Centre for Medical Humanities as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. In 2014 I became a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow in Durham’s Department of English Studies to write a new book – The Wonder of Twins.
