Dr Ian Blyth joined the University of the Highlands and Islands in 2013. He is a graduate of the University of St Andrews, and held various teaching and research posts there before coming to UHI; he has also worked at the universities of Dundee and Hull. Ian’s research interests are primarily in twentieth-century and contemporary literature. He is currently working on the A9 Project, which is an exploration of the psychogeography of Scotland’s longest trunk road; and Modernist NN, an experiment in training a laptop-based artificial neural network to write modernist flash fiction. He is also interested in the representations of AI and animal/corvid intelligence in SF and fantasy.
