John Roache


Personal profile


My research focuses on the emergence of cultural, sociological, and economic discourses of marginality from the early twentieth century to the contemporary. My most recent peer-reviewed article (Textual Practice, 2024) addresses these issues in relation to the work of the Canadian-Caribbean poet, M. NourbeSe Philip. 

As part of my Fellowship of the Institute of Teaching and Learning (2023/24), I am currently leading a research project on the question of student marginality in Higher Education.

I have published articles and chapters on subjects including Walter Benjamin, childhood interiority, dystopian fiction, David Foster Wallace, and Artificial Intelligence.

My PhD thesis (2012-16) was funded by the AHRC. In 2013/14, I was a Dissertation Fellow at the Harry Ransom Centre (University of Texas at Austin).
