Philip Healy

Emerita & Emeritus Fellow

Department for Continuing Education

MA (Oxon), MPhil (York), MA and BA (Manchester)

After a career in teaching, lecturing and academic administration, I was appointed in October 2000 as Director of Public Programmes in the Oxford University Department for Continuing Education and elected to an Official Fellowship at Kellogg College. On my retirement in 2010 I was elected to an Emeritus Fellowship of the College. Since then I have taught and lectured regularly for the Department for Continuing Education.

My research interests are in late Victorian and Edwardian literature, literature and religion, and literature and sexuality. Among my recent publications is Marc-André Raffalovich’s ‘Uranism and Unisexuality: A Study of Different Manifestations of the Sexual Instinct’ (Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2016), translated by Nancy Erber and William A. Peniston, and edited by Philip Healy with Frederick S. Roden.

I have recently completed an edition of Frederick Rolfe’s letters to Canon Lonsdale Ragg. I continue work on my planned edition of the correspondence of John Gray and André Raffalovich.

I am Chairman of the Friends of Oxford Lifelong Learning.
