Professor Graham Allen studied at St Davids' College, Lampeter, the University of Wales, between 1982 and 1985 where he gained a 1st Class Honours degree in English. He studied for his MA (1986) in the English Department of the University of Sheffield and went on to successfully complete his PhD there in 1992. He tutored in Sheffield and in the University of Cambridge before becoming a Junior Lecturer in the Department of English at the University of Dundee (1990 to 1995). He joined the School of English in University College Cork in 1995. Professor Allen has published extensively in the fields of literary and cultural theory and on subjects within Romantic literary studies. Professor Allen is Distinguished Visiting Fellow of the London Graduate School, a member of the Advisory Board of The Oxford Literary Review, a publishing poet and a regular book reviewer for The Sunday Business Post. In recent years he has been Project Officer and then Vice-Head of the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences (Research) and from 2012 to 2014 he was Chair of the Academic Council Research and Innovation Committee. His epoem Holes and his first collection of poetry The One That Got Away (2014) are published by New Binary Press. The title poem of The One That Got Away won the 2010 Listowel Single Poem Prize and the collection has been shortlisted for The Crashaw Prize (2013), the Fool for Poetry Prize (2014) and the Strong/Shine First Collection Prize (2015).

Research Interests

My research strategy covers two main areas, literary and cultural theory and Romantic literature. My early reputation as a researcher was made on the basis of the work I published within literary and cultural theory, especially my extremely successful book for Routledge's The New Critical Idiom, Intertextuality, a second edition of this book including a newly commissioned chapter was published in 2011. In 2008 I published my monograph on Mary Shelley and an accompanying student book on Frankenstein. This fact, alongside the increased number of articles and chapters on Romantic literature, demonstrate that I am now publishing significant work in both of these highly intensive and demanding fields. My strategy for the next five years must be to continue the production of articles, chapters and books in both areas. I am planning monographs  on the collaborative relationship between the Shelley, and onthe philosophical and literary work of William Godwin. A second will be to continue to build the areas of book history and textual materiality within the School of English. My work in literary and cultural theory has undoubtedly had an international impact. My monograph on Harold Bloom (1994) led to an invitation to co-edit the 2007 Salt Companion to Harold Bloom, beyond any doubt the most important and inclusive work yet to be published on Bloom. As already stated, my work on intertextuality, which in many respects includes the book on Roland Barthes, has brought me an international audience. Between them Intertextuality and Roland Barthes have been translated into Japanese, Korean, Persian and Indonesian. Intertextuality has enjoyed eight re-prints since its first publication in 2000. This work has also led to numerous invitations to contribute to publications and conferences and also constitutes my most cited publication.My work in Romanticism has taken longer to emerge, however I am now a recognized authority on the literary and non-literary works of Mary Shelley. A new side of my research publication involves creative writing, I have been publishing my creative work, mainly my poetry, since December 2006, and my on-going epoem Holes along with my first collection The One That Got Away (2014) are both published by New Binary Press. I won the 2010 Listowel Single Poem Prize for the title poem of The One That Got Away and the collection has been nominated for The Crashaw Prize (2013), the Fool For Poetry Prize (2014) and the Strong/Sine First Collection Prize (2015).

Teaching Interests

My teaching interests are in literary and cultural theory and in Romantic literature. My theoretical work is partly focused upon questions of teaching, especially those aspects of teaching which remain incalculable and even invisible. Philosophy since classical times has struggled with the fact that, as Jacques Derrida would say, teaching occurs in the ear of the other. The current dominance of audit culture within the university would suppress or even eradicate this fact from view. My teaching, both theoretically and practically, is motivated by a desire not simply to reassert it, but also to explore it.
