Biography

David Rudrum joined the English team at the University of Huddersfield in the summer of 2006. Previously, he taught at London Metropolitan University, at the University of London (in both Goldsmiths College and Royal Holloway College), and at the Open University. He was awarded his PhD from Royal Holloway, University of London for a study entitled ‘Wittgenstein and the Theory of Narrative.’

David’s books include Supplanting the Postmodern (Bloomsbury: 2015), Stanley Cavell and the Claim of Literature (2013), and Literature and Philosophy: A Guide to Contemporary Debates (Palgrave: 2006). His first publication sparked a rather heated controversy with the distinguished narratologist Marie-Laure Ryan (see the journal Narrative, 2005-6). He is also a director of the Elmet Trust, an organisation dedicated to promoting the legacy and preserving the birthplace of the late poet laureate Ted Hughes.
