PAUL STEPHENS (DPhil in English)

Paul Stephens is a DPhil candidate and Warden at Lincoln College, Oxford. His doctoral thesis – ‘Percy Bysshe Shelley and the Economic Imagination’ – examines the poet’s work through the disciplinary lens of economic philosophy, exploring how his understanding of concepts such as value, money, and debt are shaped by his metaphysics and epistemology. His broader interests include the literature, philosophy, and economics of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Before commencing his DPhil, he completed an MSt in Literature & Arts at the University of Oxford, and spent several years as a member of the finance team for heavy metal band Iron Maiden. Paul’s research is supported by an AHRC-Sloane Robinson Foundation Studentship.
