Amelia McConville is a PhD student researching contemporary visual and experimental poetry from both a literary and Neurohumanities perspective. Her research project engages with challenging poetic works that exhibit both verbal and visual elements, and considers how exploring poetry studies and aspects of cognitive scie nce simultaneously has great potential for mutual benefit to both disciplines. She is especially interested in the ideological and methodological quandaries that arise when conducting interdisciplinary research, and is excited by the burgeoning interest in Neurohumanities evident in Trinity's current research culture.
Amelia received her B.A. in English Literature and Philosophy from Trinity in 2017, and subsequently worked for Trinity's Development and Alumni Office for a year before commencing PhD research in 2018.
