Dr Hugh Stevens profile picture
  • Senior Lecturer
  • Dept of English Lang & Literature
  • Faculty of Arts & Humanities

I did my BA and MA in English and German Literature at the University of Auckland, and my PhD in Cambridge. After a research fellowship in Trinity Hall, Cambridge, I taught at the University of York from 1995 until 2002, the year I began lecturing in the English department at UCL.

Research Summary

Most of my research has explored connections between literature and sexuality from the late nineteenth century onwards. Particular interests include Henry James - my first book was Henry James and Sexuality (Cambridge University Press, 1998), D. H. Lawrence, queer theory and the history of literary representations of homosexuality.

I have recently completed a chapter on lesbian and gay fiction since 1970 for the forthcoming Cambridge History of Gay and Lesbian Literature, edited by Ellen McCallum and Mikko Tuhkanen. As a result of this work, and work I did for the Cambridge Companion to Gay and Lesbian Writing, which I edited and was published in 2011, I am currently planning more articles on gay and lesbian fiction since 1940. In addition, I am continuning to publish extensively on D. H. Lawrence: an article on Lawrence and Wagner is forthcoming in Textual Practice.

Teaching Summary

I teach nineteenth- and twentieth-century and contemporary literature, and I also have taught a number of seminars for the English department's course on Literary Representation and the History of Homosexuality. At MA level I have taught seminars on Art History, Film, Opera, a number of authors, and have recently been teaching a popular module on Modernism and Sexuality.
