Thesis title: Modernist Theatre, Theatricality, and Twentieth-Century Physics
Amos Abrahams studied for his undergraduate degree in English Literature at the University of Warwick, graduating in 2013. Immediately following that, he relocated to Edinburgh to undertake an MSc in Literature and Modernity. After a brief spell away from academia, Amos returned to Edinburgh in 2015 and began a PhD under the supervision of Professor Olga Taxidou. His research is supported by the Wolfson Foundation.
My general areas of research are Modernism and theatricality, and the theories and philosophies concerning those. I also have a strong interest in the history and philosophy of science, as well as an abiding fascination with question of tragedy and the tragic as an aesthetic.
