Mr Marcus D

I am currently a Senior Lecturer at BIMM Bristol. I teach a course named 'Analytical Perspectives' which examines culture, literature and music from key analytical perspectives such as philosophy, sociology, history and economics. I have a PhD in Shakespearean Attribution Studies, which is the study of canonical literature utilising linguistic, textual and historical features in order to determine chronology and authorship. My undergraduate degree was in English and Philosophy and I have always maintained a strong interest in English literature (particularly Shakespeare, but also Modernist Poetry, the Novel and poetry in general) as well as philosophy. I am currently writing an extended series of articles on issues of ontology and being which combine an existentialist approach to questions of identity, combining contemporary takes by Christakis, Pinker and Harari (among others). I have experience teaching English literature, music, history, politics, philosophy etc and previously have taught ages 15-21.

I have also taught EFL overseas, prepped students for entrance exams, was an examiner for Edexcel for many years, and more recently engaged in editing university applications and dissertations. I've worked with students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, including SEN, primary, secondary and adult, and I genuinely love what I do.
