Geraint Evans is Senior Lecturer in the Department of English Language and Literature at Swansea University. His research interests include literary modernism, Welsh writing in English and the history of the book in Britain, often with a focus on the languages and cultures of Wales and their interaction with England and international English culture.
Geraint trained in theatre and performance at the Rose Bruford College, London before studying at Birkbeck College, London, University of Wales Swansea, and Clare College, Cambridge. Before moving to Swansea he taught modern British and Irish literature at the University of Sydney.
His recent work in the field of book history has led to the rediscovery of an early seventeenth-century Welsh recusant book called Drych Cydwybod (A Mirror of Conscience) and he is currently working on an edition of Roger Smyth’s Welsh version of Robert Southwell’s Letter to his Father, which was published in Paris in 1612 in a previously unrecorded edition.
Geraint is editor of The Cambridge History of Welsh Literature, which will be published by Cambridge University Press in 2016. His other current projects include a book of essays to mark the centenary of Ford Madox Ford’s novel The Good Soldier, which will appear in the series of International Ford Madox Ford Studies in 2015.
