Lucy Fleming


I am a DPhil candidate in English at New College, Oxford, where I'm writing a dissertation about the practice of adapting “the English canon” for child readers. I’ve taught papers on Shakespeare, feminist theory, modern literature, and writing, and I'm also interested in the process of secular exegesis and the relationship between literature and science. 

My writing has appeared in various places, including the Times Literary Supplement and Southwest Contemporary. In 2016, I received the Norman Mailer National Writing Award, and I am a regular contributor to Parallax, based at the Santa Fe Institute. Someday I will write a research blog, to which you can subscribe if you like. It will probably involve a great deal of whale content, along with some children’s literature and conceptual metaphor theory.
