Biography

I completed my MA at the University of Sussex in 2016, having written a dissertation on 'John Clare, George Eliot, and Ecopsychology'. For my PhD I am researching the relationship between mental illness and aesthetics in the literature, science and philosophy of the Romantic Period. In particular, I am focusing on the works of David Hume, William Cowper, Charlotte Smith and John Clare.
