PhD Candidate and Tutor in English at Flinders University, South Australia.

My doctorate research explores the trope of the daimon in William Blake’s work of illuminated print, Jerusalem: The Emanation of the Giant Albion, and critiques this as an allegory for new humanistic approaches to reading literature.

My research interests include Romanticism; eighteenth-century English and German literature, art, and philosophy; new literary humanism and contemporary literary criticism; the current-day relevance of Romanticism and the Enlightenment; (post)humanism; and the links between cognitive science and literature.
