Pam Thurschwell is a Reader in English and the head of the English literature department at the University of Sussex. She’s written two books, Literature, Technology and Magical Thinking, 1880–1920 (Cambridge University Press 2001) and Sigmund Freud (Routledge 2009) and edited several others, including Quadrophenia and Mod(ern) Culture (Palgrave, 2017). I’ve published on David Bowie, George Eliot, Taylor Swift, Billy Bragg, Joni Mitchell and Margaret Atwood, and repeatedly, Henry James. She’s currently writing a book called Destructive Characters about adolescence and time in 20th and 21st century literature and popular culture. The book has been hugely influenced by the seminar The Age of Adolescence which she’s taught at Sussex for many years past. Most recently she edited a cluster for the journal Post 45 on the TV show Bojack Horseman and appeared talking about Bob Dylan on the podcast Is it Rolling, Bob?
