Dr David Fallon

Assistant Professor

Department: Humanities

David evolved on the Wirral in Merseyside and studied English Language and Literature at Oxford University, before completing an interdisciplinary MA at Queen Mary, University of London, and then a D.Phil. at Oxford. He works across English and History at Northumbria and specialises in eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century cultural history and literature. His current research project is focused on British publishing and print culture during this period, recovering communities, social and political activities, and literary texts connected with booksellers’ shops.  

He has co-edited an anthology of British responses to the French Revolution, Romanticism and Revolution: A Reader (Wiley-Blackwell, 2011). He has published widely on Romanticism and in particular the poet-painter William Blake; his monograph Blake, Myth, and Enlightenment: The Politics of Apotheosis was published by Palgrave in 2017. He has previously worked as a market researcher and taught at the University of Sunderland and the University of Roehampton, among others. He is kept on his toes by his daughter Clio and his cat Dudley.
