Expertise

Robbie's research focusses on space and place in late-Victorian and modernist literature and culture, and particularly on the emergence of new kinds of urban development and urban experience. His work makes suggestive and original connections between material culture and literary form. Previously, Robbie has published on architecture in literature, urban alienation, and technologies of reading and writing, and his current research is interested in corporatised city spaces and semi-industrial urban edgelands. His current book project considers the effects of corporate hotel space on bodies, selves, and communities, as well as on the construction and texture of the modernist novel.

Research Themes

Robbie's research aligns with the University's research themes of Creativity, Culture and Society, and Environment, Resources and Sustainability. He is a member of the Environmental Change strategic theme area.
