Dr Jason Harding, PhD (Cantab)
(email at firstname.lastname@example.org)
Jason Harding received his doctorate from King's College, Cambridge, in 2000. He joined the Department of English Studies at Durham in 2006. He is the author of The Criterion: Cultural Politics and Periodical Networks in Interwar Britain (OUP 2002), co-editor of T. S. Eliot and the Concept of Tradition (CUP 2007), and editor of Ford Madox Ford, Modernist Magazines and Editing (Rodopi 2010) and T. S. Eliot in Context (CUP 2011). He has published widely on modern literature, including articles on T. S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Joseph Conrad, Ford Madox Ford and William Empson. He is a member of the Eliot Editorial Project, funded by a major AHRC award (total value £985,000), producing authorised, fully annotated editions of The Complete Prose (8 vols, 2013-15). He is contracted to edit The New Cambridge Companion to T. S. Eliot (forthcoming 2014).
At Durham, I have supervised successful PhD dissertations on "The British Short Story of the First World War" and "Mid Twentieth-Century Dystopian Fiction and Political Thought". Current students include: Nicoletta Asciuto, Francesca Bratton and (with Professor Clark) Matthew Griffiths. I would welcome proposals for postgraduate research on all aspects of twentieth-century literature and intellectual history.
