About Prof. INGHAM, Michael Anthony

Mike Ingham has been teaching English Studies as a member of the English Department at Lingnan University since 1999. Previously he worked as Head of Modern Languages at the British School of Gran Canaria in Spain and, on arriving in Hong Kong, as English Language Enhancement Coordinator for the Hong Kong Education Department at the Institute of Language in Education and subsequently the Hong Kong Institute of Education. Mike is a founder member of Theatre Action, a Hong Kong based drama group that specialises in action research on more literary drama texts. He also directs student productions in English at Lingnan University as part of the university's liberal arts mission. His current work focuses on intermediality studies between poetry and art song forms and is also co-writing a study of Hong Kong documentary film based on findings of a recent research project. Mike and his UK-based academic brother Richard are collaborating on a long-term Shakespearean language and verse study using fresh empirical data. Mike's work is multi-faceted and broad in scope, reflecting not just a wide range of interests and strengths, but also an empirical sense of fluid educational categories and a need for creative inter-disciplinarity.
