Dr Rebecca Beasley
Fellow in English
I grew up on the Isle of Wight, and in Yorkshire and Hampshire. After attending my local comprehensive and sixth form college, I studied English at Cambridge. For my Master’s degree, I went to the University of California, Berkeley, and then returned to Cambridge to write my PhD on the twentieth-century American poet, Ezra Pound. Since 1998, I have taught in the English departments of the University of Liverpool, Queen Mary, and Birkbeck (both University of London), before coming to Queen’s in 2009.
