Dr. Myers's scholarly interests are in twentieth-century British and Irish poetry, with a secondary interest in film. His recent interests have skewed towards issues of the posthuman in literature and film.
The English writer E.M. Forster once posed the question, "How can I tell what I think 'til I see what I say?" Dr. Myers views this remark as one potentially helpful motto for writing, which not only emphasizes for him the importance of getting the words on the page (and then revising them) but also speaks to the nature of writing as a process, an interaction between the writer and his or her words.
