PhD: "The Wolf in the Story": Wolves as violent monsters and speaking humans in Old English Literature.
I gained my BA in English Literature from the University of Manchester in 2015, and my MLitt in Mediaeval English from the University of St Andrews in 2016, where I'm currently in the third year of my PhD. I stumbled across the topic of wolves while researching monsters in Anglo-Saxon literature, but wolves and their conservation have since become my passion after getting to know the Scottish Deer Centre's wolf pack during a Scottish Graduate School for Arts and Humanities funded internship in 2018.
