Dr Debbie Pinfold


After my undergraduate and doctoral studies at St Hugh's I spent two years working on the radio plays and prose fiction of Gert Hofmann in the beautiful city of Hamburg, supported by a post-doctoral scholarship from the Alfred Toepfer Stiftung F.V.S. I returned to the UK and to Oxford to take up my first teaching post at Brasenose and Merton Colleges (1997-2001).  A year's research leave (2001-2002) allowed me to work on a new collaborative project on women's writing about the 1848/49 revolutions, and after a brief stint as Access and Admissions Administrator at Corpus Christi College, Oxford (2002-2003) I took up a temporary lectureship at the University of Bristol in 2003. In 2004 I was appointed as a lecturer at Reading University, where I remained until my return to a permanent lectureship at Bristol in 2005.
