Dr Stefan H. Uhlig, King's

Dr Stefan H. Uhlig


Biographical Information:

I graduated from Cambridge in 1993, and received my Cambridge Ph.D. in 2001. My core teaching is on eighteenth-century and Romantic literary writing. I also teach aspects of the history and theory of literary criticism, Greek tragedy, moral thought, and interactions between text and image.

Research Interests:

My chief interest is the history of literary studies, and its complex lineage in the traditions of poetics, rhetoric, and literary historiography. I also work on broader issues in aesthetics, and on poets like Gray, Wordsworth, or Goethe who reflect compellingly on the nature of their work.

Areas of Graduate Supervision:

I have supervised doctoral dissertations on the turn to reading in modern literary criticism and on Methodist literary culture. Past M.Phil. students have worked on Coleridge and organic metaphor, Stanley Cavell, De Quincey, Cowper's hymns, and Barbauld's poetry of action.
