Timothy joined Royal Holloway as a doctoral researcher in 2017, and is currently a Visiting Lecturer and Tutor in the School of Humanities. From 2019-2020 he accepted a research scholarship at Yale University and was the RHUL Ambassador in the English Department there. Alongside his teaching commitments, Timothy is currently writing a report on Diversity and Research Impact for the British Library and remains a Research Assistant on the AHRC project ‘Provincialism: Literature and the Cultural Politics of Middleness in Nineteenth-Century Britain.'
"My research primarily involves literature of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, with particular focus on the prose works of the Romantic era. My current specialism involves theories of youth and education within the period, and I am completing a thesis that identifies themes of tolerance across the genres of conduct literature, educational treatises, autobiographies and novels."
After completing a BA in English Language and Literature at Worcester College, Oxford, Timothy remained at Oxford University to train as a psychodynamic counsellor and therapist. Since then, alongside his research, Timothy has remained a practising psychotherapeutic clinician at institutions in both Oxford and London, with a continuing interest in the interdisciplinary close relationship between psychoanalytic theory and literature.
