Author Biography

Tim Fulford, De Montfort University,Sharon Ruston, Lancaster University

Tim Fulford's research lies in the area of literature in the Romantic era, in the contexts of colonialism, exploration, science, landscape, the picturesque, and religion. He has published many articles and books on these topics, featuring such writers as William Wordsworth, S. T. Coleridge, Robert Bloomfield, Mary Robinson, William Cowper, Jane Austen, and John Clare. Professor Fulford is currently preparing a scholarly edition of the letters of Robert Southey. His next monograph will be a study of the late poetry of William Wordsworth, from 1815 to 1845.

Sharon Ruston is Chair of Romanticism at Lancaster University. She has published Shelley and Vitality (2005); Romanticism: An Introduction (2007), and Creating Romanticism: Case Studies in Literature, Science, and Medicine in the 1790s (2013). She is the editor of a special issue of Essays and Studies on 'Literature and Science' (2008) and co-editor, with John Holmes, of The Routledge Research Companion to Nineteenth-Century Literature and Science (2017).
