Dr Andrew Feeney

Senior Lecturer

Department: Humanities

ADSS Andrewfeeney Facultystaff 255

I completed my first degree in Humanities (English and European Literature), before embarking in 1986 on a lengthy journey teaching English language in Spain, Colombia and the Middle East. I returned to Britain and the north east in 2000 and began work as a part-time lecturer in the School of Modern Languages. I became employed full-time in 2001 and, following a reorganisation, I moved to the then Division of English and Creative Writing which was soon to become part of the Department of Humanities. One of my major initial tasks was the design of the BA (Hons) English Language degree which was successfully validated in 2005 and for which I was programme leader for several years. Subsequent roles have included programme leader for our MRes in Language and Cognition, and subject lead for the postgraduate research programme.
