William J Spurlin is Professor of English and Director of Teaching and Learning for Arts & Humanities at Brunel University London.

Professor Spurlin has written extensively on the politics of gender and sexual dissidence and is widely known for his work on queer theory. His latest monograph, Lost Intimacies: Rethinking Homosexuality under National Socialism (2009), uses queer theory as a hermeneutic tool with which to read against the grain of hetero-textual narratives of the Holocaust and as a way for locating sexuality at its intersections with race, gender, and eugenics within the National Socialist imaginary.

Professor Spurlin has written extensively on postcolonial/queer theory, African studies, and queering translation studies in more than 50 essays in international journals and as chapters in volumes. He is currently writing a book on representations of sexual dissidence in new 'queer' francophone literature from the Maghreb.
