Personal and Professional Bio:

Huw's past research examined the career of the English language Welsh novelist Rhys Davies in the context of identity and the literary market. This project was followed by a work on the professional, political, and cultural career of Charles Lahr, a 1930s London bookstore owner. His latest books are two edited collections of essays: The Rise of the Modernist Bookshop (Ashgate, 2015) and Queer Wales: the history, culture and politics of queer life in Wales (University of Wales Press, 2016). His current interest is in queer Welsh fantasy and SF.


Modern British Literature, Welsh Literature, Book History, and Queer Theory.
