Dr Niall Oddy
I am currently the Assistant Principal (Student Development) at John Snow College where I lead the college's co-curricular development programme for undergraduate students.
My research focusses on the literature and culture of sixteenth and early-seventeenth century France, with particular interest in geographical thinking and experiences of cultural exchange. I completed my PhD, 'Europe' in Renaissance France: The word, its uses and contexts (c.1540-1620), in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures at Durham University.
I previously worked as Researcher Development Officer in the Centre for Academic, Researcher and Organisation Development where I supported the professional and personal development of research students and staff. A qualified teacher of English as a foreign language, I have taught English in Moscow, France and Liverpool.
