Brycchan Carey with Paddy the dog, Hatfield Forest, July 2014

I am a Professor of English at Northumbria University in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. My most recent monograph was From Peace to Freedom: Quaker Rhetoric and the Birth of American Antislavery, 16581761 (Yale University Press, 2012). My most recent collection, Quakers and Abolition, co-edited with Geoffrey Plank, was published by The University of Illinois Press in 2014. I am currently writing a book on the relationship between slavery and natural history as well as co-editing books on Early Caribbean Literary Histories (with Nicole Aljoe and Tom Krise) and Birds in Eighteenth-Century Culture (with Sayre Greenfield and Anne Milne).

I am available to supervise PhD research in eighteenth-century literature and culture and I am also a regular public speaker at both academic and public events. I would be delighted to consider supervision enquiries and requests to speak at events. Please contact me for more details. You can also follow the links below for more information about my publications and for my current full academic CV.
