Dr Peter Maber

New College of the Humanities (NCH) announces today that Dr Peter Maber will join the English faculty as Lecturer in English. He will be working closely with other members of the English Faculty including Dr Catherine Brown and Professor Sir Christopher Ricks. Dr Maber will teach elements of the core English BA Programme.

Dr Maber studied for his PhD under Professor Anne Barton at Trinity College, Cambridge and he has since then taught English and American literature at the University of Cambridge. He writes regularly about art for The Times Literary Supplement. Dr Maber is also a composer and a great deal of his research examines the connections (and disjunctions) between literature, the visual arts, and music.

Dr Maber was a major contributor to The Shakespeare Encyclopedia: Life, Works, World, and Legacy, edited by Patricia Parker, 5 vols (Greenwood Press, in press). In 2010, he also published William Marshall: Organic Vision and wrote the chapter ‘John Berryman and Shakespearean Autobiography’, in ‘After thirty falls’: New Essays on John Berryman, ed. Philip McGowan and Philip Coleman (Rodopi, 2007).

Dr Catherine Brown, Convenor and Senior Lecturer in English, said, “The English faculty is looking forward to Dr Maber joining the College. The study of American Literature is an integral part of the English BA and Dr Maber’s expertise, and decade-long experience of the Cambridge tutorial system, will be invaluable.”

A C Grayling, Master of New College of the Humanities, said: “We are pleased to welcome Dr Maber to the growing English faculty at New College of the Humanities. He will add greatly to its strength and breadth. In addition to their degree studies, English students at NCH have the opportunity to study four modules in another degree subject as part of the College’s broader liberal arts curriculum; Dr Maber’s wide interests will make a substantial contribution in that respect.”

The College still has places available for the English BA programme commencing in September 2013.
