Prof. Paul Hamilton, DPhil
Paul Hamilton is Professor of English at Queen Mary University in London.
His research focuses on the romantic period as well as the relationship between philosophy, political theory and literature. His publications are concerned with Coleridge, Wordsworth, Shelley and historicism. He is currently working on a comparative study of European romanticism.
In October 2011, Paul Hamilton will be at the CAS as a visiting fellow upon invitation from Dr. James Vigus, Faculty of Languages and Literatures. During his visit, he will advise and support James Vigus in his work on the Crabb Robinson project, primarily concerning the question of how authors such as Robinson and Samuel Taylor Coleridge received and adapted German aesthetic theory. He will also continue his research for the "Handbook of European Romanticism", which he will be releasing with Oxford University Press.
