Peter Jaeger

Professor of Poetics (English and Creative Writing)

Department of English and Creative Writing


I am a practicing poet, literary critic, and and text-based artist. In 2003 Roehampton hired me to help set up its new Creative Writing BA degree and to teach its first cohort of students. I was also responsible for designing our MA degree in 2005, and I currently supervise eight PhD students. I welcome inquiries from prospective research students in my areas of expertise.
