Sexton has been a member of the Camosun English department since the college opened in 1971. Although he loves teaching Shakespeare and introductory courses in literature and creative writing, his real publishing and teaching interest is modern British literature.
During the fall term Sexton teaches full-time at Camosun. He is also a SSHRC Fellow and Adjunct Professor of English at the University of Victoria, where he is working on several book projects, including a new biography of Huxley, as well as an edition of his art criticism and an unpublished novella by Huxley and Christopher Isherwood.
Since 2002, during the winter term Sexton has taught English literature as a maître de conférences invité (Associate Professor) the south of France at l'Université du Sud, Toulon-Var.
Sexton is currently editor of the Aldous Huxley Annual (University of Westfalia, Muenster) and has published numerous articles on Huxley in various journals, as well as nine scholarly editions of Huxley’s works. In 2005, Sexton published an edition of two neglected thrillers by Graham Greene, including No Man’s Land, which was later dramatized and broadcast on the BBC.
