Andrew King

Photo of Andrew KingI began my PhD in Lancaster in October 2008 under the supervision of Sally Bushell, and my provisional title is “Spatial Theory and British Romantic Poetry”. My thesis is an investigation into the importance of place and space in the poetry of the Romantic period with a particular emphasis on the emerging concept of the national museum at the beginning of the nineteenth century. The project draws on contemporary spatial theory in order to conceptualise the relationship between place and poetry. Alongside my PhD I also teach on English 100.

I also did my undergraduate work at Lancaster, graduating with a 1st-class Honours degree in 2007, and I gained a Distinction in the Lancaster MA in Romantic and Victorian Literature in 2008.
