Senior Lecturer in Literature
PhD (Durham), MA (Sussex), BA Hons (Exeter)
Matthew Hayward joined USP from England in 2013, having taught at the universities of Durham, Hertfordshire, London South Bank and Sunderland.
His research falls in two areas. He specialises in James Joyce studies, particularly in relation to consumer culture, and is currently working on the monograph Joyce in Business, a study of Joyce’s so-called ‘Notes on Business and Commerce’. Mistakenly excluded from Joyce’s genetic corpus, these notebooks offer an important archive for understanding Joyce’s representation of advertising, insurance, shipping, the stock exchange, and many other modern business practices in Ulysses.
Since moving to USP, he has also developed an interest in Pacific literature, especially in relation to modernism. This research began with the aim of improving his teaching of regional material, but has in recent years taken on a life of its own. The collection New Oceania: Modernisms and Modernities in the Pacific, coedited with Maebh Long, was published by Routledge in 2019, and Hayward and Long are working on the co-authored monograph, Oceanian Modernism. A special issue of Modernist Cultures, titled ‘Modernism in Australia, Aotearoa/New Zealand and the Pacific Islands’ and coedited with Erin M. Carlston and Brian Reed, appeared in 2020.
Teaching remains a priority for Dr Hayward. In 2017 he won the Faculty Prize for Excellence in Teaching, and the Vice-Chancellor’s Prize for Excellence in Teaching, and he served for three years from 2018 as the Associate Dean (Learning and Teaching) for the Faculty of Arts, Law and Education.
For 2021–23, he is under secondment to the Office of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education), serving as the University’s first Director Education.
He continues to supervise postgraduate research at the Masters and PhD level, on such topics as the representation of women in Indo-Fijian and Samoan literature, Indigenous representations of sandalwood in colonial and postcolonial Fijian contexts, the forgotten women authors of early Pacific literature, and the literature of the nuclear Pacific.
Enquiries are welcome from prospective postgraduate students in any area of literary studies, particularly in relation to Pacific literature, modernist and 20th-century literature, consumerism, and globalisation.
