Liam is currently completing an MPhil in English at the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom. He previously graduated with distinction from Western University, Ontario Canada, where he received his BA in English Language and Literature. Liam’s research explores the relationships between human beings and nonhuman environments present in British poetry from the long nineteenth century, with a focus on the ways that poetic structures can work to model affects conducive to ecological care. His current master’s thesis follows these lines, exploring the role of boredom, acedia, and other states of disinterest in the poetry of Samuel Taylor Coleridge in relation to spaces of nonhuman life or ‘Nature.’

In the future Liam hopes to inaugurate the field of ‘literary criticism criticism,’ a school of research devoted to investigating texts of literary scholarship as literary art works in themselves.
