Becoming Sea

From 2016-2019 I was funded by the NWCDTP to research creative and critical approaches to writing about the sea. This included exploring details of marine biology (with a particular interest on what can’t be easily seen: plankton, deep sea life, and man-made pollution) and my phenomenological experience of the sea. I received my PhD from the University  Liverpool in October 2019.
You can read the critical component of the thesis here .The creative portfolio, melt, is due to be published by Waterloo Press in Autumn 2020

Recent writings related to this project can be found on Liverpool University’s  Citizen of Everywhere blog and Literature and Science hub. 

You can listen to a 15 minute talk I gave in Durham late 2017 about short-sightedness and becoming here:
