He is a graduate of the University of St Andrews, and held various teaching and research posts there before coming to UHI; he has also worked at the universities of Dundee and Hull. Ian’s research interests are primarily in mediaeval Arthurian literature (c. 600 - 1400), the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, James Macpherson’s Ossianic translations in the 1760s, environmental philosophy (especially sentience and ethics), and the representation of nature in science fiction, fantasy, and myth from the early classical period to the present day.
