Personal profile

Biography

Alex Alonso joined the University of Huddersfield as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Global Fellow in 2022. Prior to this, he was an Irish Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow (2019-2022) at Trinity College Dublin.

Alex's first book, Paul Muldoon in America: Transatlantic Formations, was published by Oxford University Press in 2021. He is currently working on his second monograph, Writing on Air: Irish Poetry and the Radio. He recently worked with Prof. Nicholas Grene and Prof. Geraldine Higgins to curate Derek Mahon: Piecing Together the Poet, an online exhibition celebrating the life and work of Irish poet Derek Mahon. 

His current research focuses on a group of Irish poets – Seamus Heaney, Paul Muldoon, Eavan Boland, Michael Longley, and Derek Mahon among them – who once shared close ties with the BBC and RTÉ. The project explores radio’s complex relationship with modern Irish writing, and the radio studio itself as space for creative experiment, rivalry, and collaboration between artists on and off the air.

Research interests include postwar British, Irish, and American poetry and cultural biography.

PhD (York), MSt (Oxon), BA (York).
