Positions

Paul Tankard (PhD) is Associate Professor of English at the University of Otago in New Zealand, where he teaches composition, creative non-fiction and fantasy literature. His research interest in the essays and journalism of the long eighteenth century has produced several publications and most notably his annotated collection Facts and Inventions: Selections from the Journalism of James Boswell (Yale UP, 2014), in which he presents a wide, closely-annotated selection of Boswell’s journalism, the great majority not published since the 1700s. He brought to light Mary Fairburn’s correspondence with Tolkien, and her illustrations to The Lord of the Rings, which Tolkien claimed made him think that an illustrated edition might be a good thing.”
