South Africa at Large & Wadham 2006 (25 June - 17 April 2015)
Read for an MSt in European Literature and his DPhil whilst at Oxford and subsequently worked as a Lecturer in English Literature at the University of Cape Town, and as the convenor for postgraduate studies in the Department. His research interests centered on the novel form – his doctorate work was concerned with George Eliot, Joseph Conrad and Olive Schreiner – and the historical development of novelistic fiction in South Africa. He tragically lost his long battle with cancer. An obituary written by Jacobus Cilliers (Diocesan College, Rondebosch & Balliol 2008) can be read here.
