People at Laurier
Markus Poetzsch teaches British Romantic literature in the Department of English and Film Studies. His research interests include eighteenth and nineteenth-century aesthetics, theories of the everyday, ecocriticism and travel writing. He is currently engaged in a book-length study of the art and practice of walking, a project that alleviates at least in part the pangs of academic sedentariness!
