Professor Robson joined UoD in 2013 as Chair of English and Theatre Studies. He has expertise in modern literature, including Shakespeare; literary and critical theory; rhetoric and aesthetics; literature, film and visual culture; comparative literature (especially with French) and translation (primarily theoretical rather than practical aspects).

He has published on the history of suicide in England from 1650-1850.

He is also a playwright, and has an attachment to the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, as one of the ‘Traverse Fifty’ group of writers, selected from an international competition to help celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Traverse.
