AHRC funded PhD in English Literature and Classics, Passed with minor corrections

'David Jones and Rome: Reimagining the Decline of Western Civilisation'


Cardiff University

MA Ancient History
Funded by Cardiff University Ancient History Studentship, Awarded a Distinction.

Throughout the MA I focussed on areas which would be pertinent both to my proposed PhD and my ongoing interest in the literature produced by societies in periods of crisis. These included projects on the reception of the classical civilisations in the inter-war period, the socio-political messages within Athenian tragedy and comedy (in this case ideas surrounding the portrayal of effeminacy), and the relationship between epigraphy and democracy in fifth century Athens which focussed on the role of inscription and writing in the mutilation of the Herms. In the dissertation my focus was upon Julian the Apostate's Teaching Edict so as to analyse the position of classical culture and literature in the rise of Christianity.


Cardiff University

BA in English Literature and Ancient History
Awarded a First.

In my Undergraduate degree I pursued my interest in the reception of the classical civilisations through extended essays, such as on the figure of Tiresias in T. S. Eliot's Wasteland. I also gave myself, through English Literature modules, a good knowledge of Medieval and Renaissance texts, Norse Mythology and the process of folk-law and myth formation in Britain. In Ancient History I focussed on the rise of Christianity, Rome in the 1st century AD and the links between literature, religion and society in Greece and Rome. In my dissertation I analysed David Jones's universalization of Warfare in In Parenthesis, Roman Fragments and The Book of Balaam's Ass.

During this degree I was awarded the Elizabeth Thomas Prize for the best performance in Ancient History in my second year.
