Prof Richard Marggraf Turley

Professor Richard Marggraf Turley explored connections between the work of major historical writers and artists and current societal challenges around food security and surveillance culture.

He communicated his interdisciplinary research through public speaking and dialogue, schools visits, interactive workshops, radio broadcasts and media interviews in ways that led to new perspectives on the relation between literature and history and revealed the value of literary analysis to contemporary debate.

His work benefitted teaching practices, public understanding, creative practice and tourism.
