William studied Latin and Greek in Britain and Canada before gaining his PhD in Classics (specialization early modern Latin) from King’s College, London in 2015. William’s work deals broadly with the representation of nature and natural philosophical discourse in early modern Latin literature. His interests have concentrated on the example of the mountain in early modern nature writing, the place of the classical tradition in articulating ideas about the “New World”, and the role of Latin in science within the 17th- and 18th-century university. William began his ongoing work on early modern Europe’s ancient Greek literary production in 2017.
