Dean and Director

Jonathan became Dean and Director in September 2010, and has overall responsibility for the Programme. He first joined ASE as a faculty member in 1995, whilst studying and teaching twentieth-century literature at the University of Oxford, and became a full-time staff member in 2004. He oversees all marketing and recruiting, and frequently represents the ASE Programme on US campuses and at International Education conferences. When practically feasible, he continues to teach (The Beast Big Brother and Beyond: Post-War British Fiction on Film in the Autumn, and Mementoes: Reading Writing and Remembering in the Spring).

In between work and family life, Jonathan writes poetry, surfs, practices yoga and can be seen cycling at speed through the streets of Bath.
