The work of Dr Bridget Vincent (2005 Scholar) has been cited in one of the world’s leading reviews, the Times Literary Supplement. Poet a columnist Hugo Williams commented favourably on Bridget’s work on the poet Geoffrey Hill in the June 25th edition of the TLS, complimenting her on her image of “a coy Hill playing hard to get”. Williams attended a conference on Modern British Poetry and Resistance at Arras in northern France, where Bridget presented a perspective on Hill’s poetry.
Bridget has completed her doctorate at Cambridge, exploring ethical theory and twentieth century poetry. Bridget sought to find ways to think through moral problems by drawing on the literary resources of poetry, specifically that of Seamus Heaney and Geoffrey Hill.
Bridget is now seeking a position as post-doctoral fellow in the United Kingdom, before returning to Australia to continue research and teaching. She continues to be involved with Australia’s literary community on her regular visits to Melbourne.
